Our Policy Recommendations Development Team

A task force consisting of students, faculty, staff and a representative from the community assembled from May 2013 – June 2014 to review how the University responds to reports of discrimination and harassment, including sexual violence. Their diverse perspectives and unwavering dedication to ensuring that your voices were heard throughout the process made the development of this Policy possible.
