Online Resources

How to Help

Disclosures of Sexual Violence

Disclosing an experience of sexual violence is typically very difficult. Learn how to respond to a disclosure with compassion and support.

Academic Support

All students develop their academic skills as they progress through their degrees and, often, need to access academic resources along their journey.

Academic Integrity

While students, faculty, and administration need to be informed about the Code of Student Behaviour, it is beneficial to discuss why we hold ourselves to those standards through academic integrity. There are simple ways to build integrity into the classroom and demonstrate its importance to both you and your students.

Alternative Class Options

If you are unable to attend a regularly scheduled class, there are many options for alternative sessions and workshops that enhance the personal and academic growth of students. Topics include:

Fairness in Communication

Conflicts between faculty, staff, and students can happen. Part of resolving this conflict is for all parties to communicate fairly. Learn more about how to incorporate communication strategies into your conflict resolution using the Fairness in Communication Guide.

Student Conduct and Accountability

Student Conduct and Accountability carries out the role of Discipline Officer under the Code of Student Behaviour ("the Code"), for both academic and non-academic misconduct. Learn about your role in preventing, identifying, proving, and reporting misconduct, as well as how the discipline process operates for both academic and non-academic misconduct.
