Proposed revisions to the Policy on Sexual Violence Involving Queen’s Students posted for public comment

Proposed revisions to the Policy on Sexual Violence Involving Queen’s Students have been posted for public comment by the University Secretariat.

While the current policy, approved by the Board of Trustees on Dec. 2, 2016 in accordance with amendments to the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities Act (the MTCU Act), has supported a robust strategy for sexual violence awareness, prevention and education, there are opportunities to further improve the procedural elements for both complainants and respondents in the formal complaint process.

The revisions to the current policy clarify the formal complaint procedure for sexual violence complaints, including the intake, investigation, decision-making process, and the positions/offices responsible for various aspects.

The policy document can be found online at the University Secretariat and Legal Counsel website.

University community members have until Monday, March 25 at 4 pm to send their feedback to policies@queensu.ca.
