Universities dragging heels on sex assault policies: students

Critics say most Canadian universities still lack stand-alone sexual assault policies, which would allow them to respond faster to attacks and support victims better, reports the Canadian Press.

The article mentioned a new committee formed at UBC to develop a stand-alone sexual assault policy following complaints last year that the school was too slow to act on allegations of assault against a PhD candidate.

The story ran on CTV News, Globe and Mail and other media outlets.
