Overview

The Final Report of the Presidential and Provostial Advisory Committee on Preventing and Responding to Sexual Violence was released February 2, 2016. Composed of tri-campus representatives from among students, staff, and faculty, the Committee and its three working groups were tasked with establishing a set of recommendations to prevent and respond to sexual violence at the University of Toronto.

On April 6, 2016, President Gertler and Provost Regehr released the Response to the Final Report of the Presidential and Provostial Advisory Committee on Preventing and Responding to Sexual Violence.
