At Memorial, our first concern is for the
health, safety and security of every member of the university community
and all campus visitors. The Sexual Harassment Office serves all members
of the university community on all campuses and institutes of Memorial.
The Sexual Harassment Office works to:
- Prevent sexual harassment and sexual assault through education;
- Mitigate the effects of sexual harassment and sexual assault; and
methods for timely resolutions of complaints of sexual harassment and
sexual assault which may arise at Memorial University.
Sexual assault is a criminal offence and it is never okay. If you have been sexually assaulted, we have resources to help you.
Learn more about Memorial's Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Policy and its related University-Wide Procedures for Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Concerns and Complaints, Sexual Assault Support and Response Guides, and reporting to the police and the criminal court process.
