UBC is committed to its responsibility to maintain a respectful environment where its members can study, work, and live free from sexual misconduct and sexualized violence. UBC has established two separate offices; the Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Office and the UBC Investigations Office.

The Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Office provides a safe, confidential place for students, faculty, and staff who have experienced sexualized violence, regardless of where or when it took place. The office supports survivors and works with the UBCO community to end sexualized violence through education, campaigns, and events.

Explore some of the resources available for parents, friends, partners, and allies of those who have experienced sexualized violence.

The UBC Investigations Office conducts arm’s length and impartial investigations into reports of sexual misconduct involving students, staff and faculty. The investigators are experienced in trauma-informed approaches, and conduct investigations that are procedurally fair and respectful to all parties.
