The Provost and Vice-President Academic (VPAP) and the Vice-President Finance and Administration (VPFA) have formed a new Sexual Violence Policy Advisory Committee to provide advice and make recommendations with respect to the University’s efforts to prevent sexual violence, support survivors and address reports of sexual violence. The committee will be chaired by University Secretary and General Counsel Maureen Armstrong.
VPAP and VPFA are seeking two faculty members and two non-academic staff members to join the committee made up of representatives from several student governments and groups as well as members of the administration. Appointments will be for a two-year term. Members will be appointed based on their interest or expertise in sexual violence issues, commitment to try to end sexual violence and availability to fulfill the role.
Interested faculty and staff are asked to submit their name, contact information and a brief explanation of their reasons for wanting to join the committee to SVPAC@yorku.ca by Oct. 31. Questions may also be directed to that email address.
