Brock continues development of new policy

Public demonstrations like the one that took place at Brock University today help raise awareness of the need for more effective ways of helping survivors of sexual harassment and violence.Universities are no more immune to these types of incidents than any other workplace in Canada, however unlike most workplaces, Brock was one of the first universities in Canada to have formal procedures dealing with sexual violence.Earlier this month, Brock administrators took action against an employee after a former student came forward with a complaint about sexual harassment. The complaint led to an independent investigation, the results of which were presented to the University in January. As a result, the employee is not assigned to a class and is not on campus.Brock has been receptive to, and mindful of, all concerns raised about how we have responded to this issue, and the University will be reviewing its current policies and processes.As well, a sexual assault working group, formed last year, has evolved into a committee that is developing a new stand-alone policy to deal with sexual harassment and violence. That committee is inclusive of students, faculty, staff and senior administrators, and will produce a policy that is in line with Ontario’s new Bill 132. read more
