A Message from the President

At Carleton University we place the highest priority on maintaining a welcoming, respectful, positive environment and culture free from discrimination and harassment and safe for all members of our community. Behaviors, such as sexual assault, harassment and discrimination are simply not acceptable.

At Carleton University specific educational programs and outreach, counselling services, a Sexual Assault Centre where peers work in consultation with professional staff, as well as supporting policies have been developed with great thought, professional advice and input from students, staff and faculty members.
