Overview This Act constitutes Multicultural NSW and establishes the multicultural principles as the policy of the State of NSW, and accordingly the University (as a public authority) must observe the multicultural principles in conducting its affairs. The multicultural principles refer to both individuals and institutions, and in relation to NSW institutions state that all institutions should:

- respect and make provision for the culture, language and religion of others within an Australian legal and institutional framework where English is the common language.
- recognise the linguistic and cultural assets in the population of New South Wales as a valuable resource and promote this resource to maximise the development of the State.

Under the Act it is the responsibility of the Vice-Chancellor/CEO to ensure the multicultural principles are implemented throughout the University.

The Multicultural Policies and Services Program (MPSP) is a whole of government program, led by Multicultural NSW, assisting public authorities to implement the multicultural principles and to report on their accountabilities in this area. The MPSP Plan is the basis of reporting
