Faculty at BrandonU update syllabi to include information on sexual harassment, assault

November 23, 2021
Music and science faculty councils at Brandon University have voted to update their syllabi to include information on resources for students experiencing discrimination, harassment, or sexualized violence. The preamble to the motion states that the move was made in response to the mishandling of sexual violence on campus and the revelation that not all students are aware of the existing conduct policies and available supports. “Making sure students are aware of it is the bare minimum, and that’s where we’re at. We’re at the 101 stage,” said BrandonU associate professor of gender and women’s studies Corinne Mason. The faculties of arts, education, and health studies are expected to vote on the motion.
