Severe Allergy Response Review 2015-16

Read the report and recommendations 

Student health and wellness is of primary concern to the university. At the request of Principal Daniel Woolf, Ann Tierney, Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs, convened a committee to engage in a comprehensive review of university policies and practices related to students with severe allergies to ensure continuous improvement to services for students with severe allergies.  

The review included extensive consultations with a broad range of stakeholders including students, parents, medical experts, food service providers, Food Allergy Canada, and other interested parties that provided advice and assistance to inform the work of the committee.

The review focused on three areas:

  • Communication, education, awareness programming, health management and outreach;
  • Residence and campus-wide food service policies and practices; and
  • Training and emergency response.

The committee's report includes 17 recommendations and implementation is underway.
