What's New With the Prevention of Sexual Violence at the University of Ottawa?

March 2020

REVISION OF POLICY 67B - PREVENTION OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE

In the fall of 2019, a revision of Policy 67b - Prevention of Sexual Violence was conducted. The Human Rights Office and the Standing Committee on the Prevention of Sexual Violence worked in collaboration to update it. The new version is available online

This review also concluded that more substantive changes were needed. A more in-depth review is therefore currently underway and the university community will soon be called upon to participate in the consultations.  

More details about the consultations will soon be available on this website.

NEW! ONLINE DISCLOSURE FORM

The Human Rights Office and the Standing Committee on the Prevention of Sexual Violence are pleased to announce that an online disclosure form is now available. Members of the academic community affected by sexual violence can complete the confidential and secure form to access support services and obtain information regarding complaint options.

COMING SOON! CAMPUS DATA COLLECTION

Starting in the spring of 2020, several services will be called upon to collaborate in collecting data on incidents of sexual violence reported to them. This collection will allow us to have a better understanding of the extent of sexual violence on the University of Ottawa campus and implement strategies to prevent and best support those affected in our community. The data will be made public in the Human Rights Office annual reports.
