The University of the Fraser Valley is committed to providing an environment supportive of working, teaching, scholarship and research, and the fair treatment of all members of the University community. The basis for interaction among all members of the University is mutual respect, co-operation, and understanding.
Harassment of any kind violates fundamental rights, personal worth, and human dignity. All members of the University community are entitled to an atmosphere free of harassment in which to pursue university-related activities. The Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Office provides confidential services to UFV students, faculty, staff, and administrators who seek advice, assessment, and assistance in the resolution of interpersonal conflicts between members of the University community.
The Office is responsible for ensuring that the University's Harassment Prevention Policy is enforced and that members of the University community comply with British Columbia's Human Rights Code. The Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Office will assess complainants to determine whether their request falls within the jurisdiction of the Office and, if not, where they might be referred in order to address their concern. If the issue does fall within the jurisdiction of the Office, the Officer will offer services to assist the individual to seek redress for his or her concerns.
