They will address your complaint with sensitivity and keep your information as private as possible.

It's On Us

In 2015, the Students’ Association Government launched the University’s “It’s on Us” campaign, part of a national effort to end sex-based misconduct. The University campaign highlights resources available to the community, as well as ongoing efforts to prevent sexual misconduct, including an affirmative consent policy and special training for female public safety officers to assist in sexual assault investigations. The University’s It’s on Us committee includes students and staff from across the institution who organize programs, provide feedback to the administration regarding the effectiveness of prevention focused programs, offer insight into the current culture and climate, and foreground emerging issues.
