UVic investigates harassment toward Ukrainian student society


The University of Victoria has launched an investigation into complaints of harassment brought forward by the Ukrainian Students Society. The student society was reportedly harassed at the University of Victoria Students Society’s Clubs and Course Union Days event, and UVic states that it has met with the student society to support a resolution. “I want to assure the university community—as well as those who have provided comments from further away—that we are taking action to address the discriminatory, harassing behaviour that some of our students have been experiencing on campus,” said UVic President Kevin Hall. Times Colonist reports that the student society recently advised university security about its general meeting as a precautionary step in case someone from outside of the group “turned up to cause problems.”
