uOttawa condemns student-led event that awarded points for sexualized behaviour

October 19, 2016

The University of Ottawa has condemned a student-led pub crawl in which students from a number of faculties were reportedly encouraged to participate in lewd acts. The event and uOttawa’s response to it comes just over one month after Université du Québec en Outaouais launched an investigation into a student-run event that similarly awarded students points for performing sexualized acts. “This incident reminds us that sexual violence is a societal problem, and that even though University administrators are determined to respond as required, they cannot solve this problem on their own,” said a uOttawa statement.
