Policy on Gender-Based and Sexual Violence

Preventing and responding to gender-based and sexual violence is a top priority for the University. Western’s Policy on Gender-Based and Sexual Violence is the foundation of our commitment to providing and maintaining an environment in which gender-based and sexual violence is not tolerated.

The University also has procedures to respond to sexual violence to support members of our campus community, regardless of where an incident of gender-based and sexual violence has occurred.

If you have experienced gender-based and sexual violence, please visit Western’s Gender-Based Violence and Survivor Support website. Or, contact Tamara Will, the Gender-based Violence and Survivor Support Case Manager at Western University.

To connect with Tamara call 519-661-3568 or email support@uwo.ca.

Tamara will provide you support regardless of if you were subjected to gender-based violence on- or off-campus, or before you came to Western. Tamara will listen and, with your consent, connect you to resources within the university and the community, explain reporting options, assist with safety planning and navigate academic and other accommodations. At no point, will you be required or pressured to follow a specific path.


Western Code of Student Conduct

The Western Code of Student Conduct (the “Code”) is a document which outlines the behavioural expectations for all students and the process for handling violations of the Code when they arise. The Code of Student Conduct applies to instances of non-academic misconduct which can include behaviour that is excessive, frightening, or causes a personal safety concern. 

Violations of the Western Code of Student Conduct will be reviewed, investigated, and decided in a timely manner by Western’s Associate Vice-President (Student Experience) or designate.

For more details including frequently asked questions, visit Western’s Student Experience website.
