SFU Policy

In the Fall of 2016, Simon Fraser University launched a university-wide process to develop a sexual violence and misconduct policy. Throughout this process, students, faculty and staff were encouraged to provide input and feedback on the policy, including definitions, jurisdiction and how the policy would be operationalized. This process, spearheaded by the Sexual Violence and Misconduct Policy Advisory Committee, came to a close on March 30, 2017 when the University’s Board of Governors approved SFU's Sexual Violence and Misconduct Prevention, Education and Support Policy, GP 44. 

British Columbia’s Sexual Violence and Misconduct Policy Act (2016) requires all post-secondary institutions within the province to review their sexual violence and misconduct policies every 3 years. March 30, 2020 marked the 3-year anniversary of the implementation of SFU’s Sexual Violence and Misconduct Policy. SFU’s review process began in August 2019 and consisted of two rounds of community consultations. The review came to a close on March 19, 2020 when the University's Board of Governors approved the revised Sexual Violence and Misconduct Prevention, Education and Support Policy, GP 44.

Each year, the University President is responsible for presenting an annual report to the University Community outlining the implementation of the University’s sexual violence and misconduct policy.
