Policy procedures

Disclosure and reporting procedures

The Sexualized Violence and Prevention Policy (GV0245) outlines UVic’s commitment to providing survivors and those impacted by sexualized violence with access to immediate health and safety assistance, information about policy process options, as well as survivor-centered and trauma-informed opportunities for both disclosing and/or reporting incidents of sexualized violence.

Anyone who wants to make a disclosure, or receive detailed information about the reporting options (including process maps and detailed guides on the rights of both complainants and respondents) should book an appointment with the sexualized violence resource office in Equity and Human Rights.

Investigation, adjudication, and appeal procedures for students

The policy outlines the process that UVic will follow to investigate and adjudicate allegations that a student has violated the policy. The procedures also describe how UVic will impose sanctions, and the appeal process following sanctions. For detailed information, including process maps that outline the process from investigation through to application of either minor or major sanctions, book an appointment with the sexualized violence resource office in Equity and Human Rights.

Investigation, adjudication, and appeal procedures for staff and faculty

Staff and faculty interested in learning more about the procedures that apply to them should connect with the sexualized violence resource office in Equity and Human Rights for information as collective agreements have a bearing on the procedures.

Support procedures

The policy affirms UVic’s commitment to providing support to all members of the university community who experience or are impacted by sexualized violence. The sexualized violence resource office in Equity and Human Rights was created to provide accessible information about support options and to coordinate those supports in partnership with other units on campus including Campus Security, Student Affairs, Human Resources and Faculty Relations.
