"Sexual violence on University campuses, or anywhere for that matter, is simply not acceptable. An open, honest and compassionate conversation must continue to take place in order to combat the effects of sexual violence." – UNBC President Daniel Weeks, Sept. 26, 2016.

UNBC is committed to bringing together students, faculty, staff, and community members to assess the occurrence and implications of sexual violence and misconduct within the student body. The UNBC Steering Committee on Sexual Violence has spent the past five months conducting research, interacting with other institutions, and developing and implementing a comprehensive consultation process at UNBC.

UNBC is taking steps to ensure a healthier and safer environment for the UNBC community. To support this, the first drafts of the Sexual Violence and Misconduct Policy and Sexual Violence and Misconduct Response Procedures are now available for further input from the UNBC community.
