Langara College is pleased to announce that it has instituted a College-wide sexual violence and misconduct policy (policy B3009). The stand-alone policy was developed through a working committee of students, faculty, and employees, and was officially approved by Langara College President Lane Trotter on January 24, 2017.
The policy was created after extensive consultation with key stakeholder groups, including the Langara Faculty Association, the Langara Board of Governors, the Dean & Division Chairs Committee, the College’s Education Council, CUPE, and the Langara Administrator’s Group. Student feedback – provided online and via confidential discussion groups and questionnaires – was critical to the development of the policy’s key components.
“Students are, and always will be, the focus of policy development here at Langara,” says Clayton Munro, Langara’s Dean of Student Services and Registrar. “We want our students to be able to concentrate on their education, confident in the knowledge that we have the right support systems in place for them.”
