Harassment Policy

The King’s University promotes a harassment free community. Any community member who has been harassed has the right to report it to the institution for resolution through the harassment policy and procedure.

Harassment is behaviour or comments which are intimidating, threatening, demeaning, or abusive and may be accompanied by direct or implied threats to grade(s), status, or job. Harassment can be a traumatic experience that can impact you on many levels: academic/work, psychological, physical, social, and emotional. The King’s Harassment policy ensures that all complaints of harassment are addressed. If you have experienced harassment, you are encouraged to report it to one of the contacts below. You may want to bring a friend, teammate, student leader, or other support with you to report the incident(s). The staff listed will help you decide if you want to make a formal complaint and will ensure you know your rights and responsibilities. Be patient with yourself as you navigate the reporting process.

For more information please see King’s full harassment policy.
