Code of Student Conduct

If you have a concern that you think falls under the Code of Student Conduct, you should first seek advice and assistance from your home Faculty, Division, or College.

A registrar’s office or a divisional head’s office is a good first point of contact. These offices may be in the position to advise both individuals interested in bringing forward a complaint, and also students who have a complaint lodged against them. The staff members in these offices are not there to judge the merits of the complaint, but rather to provide support and guidance.

Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment

Supportive Leaves Policy

The Supportive Leaves Policy provides a process to ensure supports and options are available in rare situations where concerning behaviour is believed to be a result of serious mental health or other issues. The Policy was created specifically for situations where concerning behaviour poses a risk of harm to others, or a student is unable to engage in the essential activities required to pursue an education. It is designed to be used in exceptional circumstances, and even then, only with very significant procedural safeguards for students and a rigorous approach to exploring accommodations and supportive resources. It is driven by compassion in responding to the needs of students and accepting our responsibility to intervene before safety issues drive our response.
