UBC faces new sexual assault human-rights complaint

September 19, 2017

The University of British Columbia is facing a new human-rights complaint from a student alleging that the school’s lack of action on her reported sexual assault caused her to struggle in class and take medical leave. The Globe and Mail reports that the complaint is the second of its kind that the university is currently facing. Former student Stephanie Hale is seeking an order requiring the university and her alleged attacker to make up for her lost educational time, her past and future wage losses, and complaint-related costs. She is also asking the university to facilitate the completion of her degree and revise its new institutional sexual assault policy. Globe and Mail | Medicine Hat News (CP)
