Independent report examining campus culture, harassment released by UPEI


University of Prince Edward Island has released an independent report on its campus culture and the university’s policies, programs, and procedures regarding harassment, discrimination, and fair treatment. The report stems from allegations of misconduct made against former president Alaa Abd-El-Aziz, reports CTV News. In it, the authors recount troubling incidents and point to issues with the clarity and consistency of UPEI’s policies, processes, and practices. “The report made me a little angry to see that some of my colleagues experienced what they report to have experienced,” UPEI interim president Greg Keefe told Saltwire. “It’s clear that the university was not living its values at that time. We need to move forward and create an environment that supports our employees.” UPEI says that it has already begun to take action on the report’s recommendations.
