Important update for all members of the Queen's Community: 

Recent changes to the Policy on Sexual Violence Involving Queen’s University Students have resulted in a new requirement for all employees (excluding Health Care Providers) who receive a disclosure of sexual violence to notify the Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Coordinator.
