At Memorial, our first concern is for the health, safety, and security of every member of the university community and all campus visitors.The Sexual Harassment Office serves all members of the university community on all campuses and institutes of Memorial.  

The Sexual Harassment Office works to:

  • Prevent sexual harassment and sexual assault through education;
  • Mitigate the effects of sexual harassment and sexual assault; and
  • Identify methods for timely resolutions of complaints of sexual harassment and sexual assault which may arise at Memorial University.

Sexual assault is a criminal offence and it is never okay. If you have been sexually assaulted, we have resources to help you.

If this is an emergency, call 911 in Newfoundland and Labrador.
