Dear Colleagues:

The Faculty Association Status of Women Committee is holding a consultation for women faculty on the Draft Sexual Assault Policy referred for consultation to the University community by the UBC Board of Governors.

The Status of Women Committee will be holding a consultation for women faculty on:

Date: Wednesday, July 20
Time: 12:00 noon - 1:30 pm
