Queen’s releases comprehensive sexual assault report

June 2, 2015

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Working Group at Queen’s University has released a report providing detailed recommendations to address sexual assault, as well as a draft sexual misconduct policy. The report contains 11 strategic objectives, ranging from improving institutional accountability to providing support and advocacy services. “The university takes sexual assault extremely seriously, and I am pleased that the working group has been able to expedite its report,” says Queen’s Principal Daniel Woolf. As the draft sexual misconduct policy goes through the university’s governance approval process, the policy subcommittee will continue to work on the sexual misconduct procedures, with the goal of having them approved and in place by the end of 2015. A team will be established to exercise oversight of, and set priorities and timelines for, the implementation of the report’s recommendations. Queen’s News Release | Full Report
