中文 Letter to the community from President Stephen Toope – Oct. 29

亲爱的同学和老师们:   今天,UBC参加了RCMP(加拿大皇家骑警)举办的的新闻发布会,会中,RCMP透露了更多关于近期校园性骚扰的信息。 (   在这非常时期,我同你一样,十分关注这一系列事件的发展。RCMP正倾尽所有资源和警力全力调查此案件,对此我表示非常感谢。只有及时侦破UBC近日来发生的一系列性骚扰案件,我们的校园才能恢复往日的安宁。在这期间,UBC会与警方密切合作,如果您有可以协助警方破案的信息,请拨打1-800-222-TIPS。   我们与学校各个院系的领导,教师以及学生将竭尽全力加强校园警卫工作维持校园安全。我们将利用一切可利用的资源,保护每UBC每一分子的人身安全。 近日来校园内频频发生的性骚扰案件无疑令人不安,如果你有任何顾虑,需要与人沟通,请不要犹豫,尽管联系UBC, RCMP 或 AMS 的咨询服务,联系方式可以在以下网址找到。 (   此网站不仅提供咨询服务,同时还会向您提供最新的消息以及安全建议。   在犯罪嫌疑人被逮捕前,希望大家能提高警惕,加倍小心,学会保护自己。尽管最终的选择权在每个人自己手里,但是警方建议天黑之后不要独自行走,同时请一定要互相帮助。 最重要的是,不要让焦虑占据自己。我们应该团结起来,共同抵抗暴力,营造一个安宁祥和充满活力的学术社区。   请贡献自己的一份力量,帮助他人。我们也希望作为学校一分子的你能向我们提供建议,告诉我们如何还能做的更好。   齐心协力,我们一定能度过难关。   不列颠哥伦比亚大学校长 Stephen Toope
