The University of Winnipeg Students’ Association (UWSA) is there to advocate for students dealing with non-academic misconduct procedures. Non-academic misconduct includes but is not limited to the following:
- Harassment (personal harassment, sexual harassment, or harassment based on a human rights characteristic)
- Threats and/or physical assault
- Disorderly conduct
- Theft and property damage
- Refusing to identify or falsely identifying
The University expects all students, staff, and faculty to adhere to the University’s Respectful Working and Learning Environment Policy. According to this policy:
- Every member of the University community has the right to participate, learn and work in an inclusive and respectful environment that is free from discrimination and harassment.
- Individuals should feel free to come forward with concerns without fear of retaliation.
- The University will act promptly to deal with allegations and take corrective action as required.
Students and community members must also follow the UWSA’s Positive Space Policy while in UWSA spaces or at UWSA events. Disregarding these policies can lead to accusations of non-academic misconduct.
If you have a concern regarding another student, staff person, faculty member, or anyone else connected to the university community, or if you are accused of non-academic misconduct, you can contact the UWSA Vice-President Student Affairs (VPSA). Your VPSA is familiar with non-academic misconduct procedures and can guide you through your options. The UWSA works to ensure that students know their rights, are safe, and can confidentially seek guidance on finding support and figuring out next steps.
For assistance, please contact your VP Student Affairs, Jade DeFehr, at 204-786-9780 or email@example.com.
