In May of 2016, the Provincial Legislature passed the BC Sexual Violence and Misconduct Policy Act (the “Act”). The Act required all public post-secondary institutions in B.C. to establish and implement a sexual misconduct policy by May of 2017.
Policies must speak to how each institution plans to address sexualized violence including education and prevention work, supports for victims/survivors, procedures for reports and disclosures of sexualized violence, and investigation and disciplinary processes.
TRU’s Sexual Violence Policy BRD-25 represents the culmination of a robust collaborative process, involving campus and Kamloops community stakeholders. The TRU Board of Governors passed policy BRD-25-0 Sexual Violence on March 31, 2017.
