Student conduct & policies

The Office of Student Life works with other offices on campus and with the university community more broadly to help maintain an atmosphere of respect and accountability on campus.

We strive for fair and efficient resolution processes on issues related to non-academic misconduct. We emphasize informal resolution and educational outcomes.

Reporting & resolving misconduct

We help resolve non-academic student misconduct issues. We support informal resolutions and encourage them whenever possible. If an informal resolution isn’t possible, we help resolve formal allegations. We will:

  • receive and review formal allegations of misconduct
  • determine if an investigation is needed
  • investigate allegations
  • determine or recommend a reasonable course of action after the investigation

Sexualized violence policy

If you or someone you know has experienced sexualized violence and there is an immediate health or safety concern, call 9-1-1. If the incident happened on campus, you should also call Campus Security at 250-721-7599 for 24/7 support.

The Sexualized Violence Resource Office (SVRO) in Equity and Human Rights is located in Sedgewick C119. The SVRO is the place to go on campus if you are seeking information and advice in relation to sexualized violence, support or policy options and/or prevention education.

You can contact that office by emailing or calling: svpcoordinator@uvic.ca or 250-721-8021.
