STU, students discuss policy on putting condoms in orientation kits

August 3, 2010

St. Thomas University students and administration will meet to discuss a policy on including condoms in Welcome Week kits distributed to first-year students. The Welcome Week organizing committee had put in a request to the university to add condoms to the kits, but the request was denied because condoms are already available in other parts of campus. While STU does not have a policy against the inclusion of condoms in the orientation kits, it has been a "long-standing practice." STU's president is considering the request through the creation of a sexual health committee comprising students, staff, and faculty. Daily Gleaner | CBC
