We are pleased to advise you that, effective immediately, Andrea Carter will be assuming new responsibilities in the area of High Risk Case Management.

Working closely with colleagues from Student Life, Human Resources & Equity, Community Safety, Police, Legal Counsel and a range of Divisional Offices across all three campuses, Andrea will act as liaison and case manager for all High Risk cases. In this enhanced role she will report into both the Offices of Human Resources & Equity and Vice-Provost, Students.

Drawing upon her in-depth knowledge of the Ontario Human Rights Code, Bill 168 OHSA, the Mental Health Act and the Criminal Code of Canada, she will work to ensure the University is both proactive and compliant in meeting its goals and obligations with regards to applicable legislation as well as applicable U of T policies and guidelines. With her strong background in crisis management, we are confident that Andrea will provide excellent support and guidance on issues involving students, faculty and staff.

These responsibilities will complement her continuing role as the University's advisor and representative on Employment Equity and Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) issues.

This enhanced role draws upon her years of experience in crisis management. Since 2008, Andrea has been the Employment Equity, Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act Officer which followed a year working at the Community Safety Office. Prior to joining U of T in 2007, Andrea served as a therapist with The University of Western Ontario, the London (Ontario) Interfaith Counselling Centre and the Elizabeth Fry Society of Peel. Andrea has been active on the academic front as well and continues today as an Associate Lecturer at Western.

Andrea has a Bachelor's of Arts (Psychology/Sociology) from U of T and a Master of Education (Counselling Psychology) from The University of Western Ontario.

We would like to thank Andrea for her commitment and dedication and look forward to working with her in this expanded role.
