St. Thomas University’s students’ union is calling on university administration to create a policy or response protocol for students who have experienced sexual harassment, assault and discrimination.

The motion says the administration has been “negligent in its responsibility to students and discriminatory in its history of ignoring sexual assault only within the student population.”

A STU student, who wishes not be named, told the union at its general meeting on Thursday that a UNB student who has access to residences is under investigation for sexual assault.

The STU student says they are working with the university to come up with a policy. Larry Batt, Dean of Students at STU, said he could meet with students on April 7.  Students have asked him to make that date earlier.
