Response to anonymous open letter
We have received the anonymous open letter from four women from the DDS class of 2015. We thank them for bringing forward their concerns and respect them for speaking out.
As previously stated, we are committed to a just process to determine the consequences for the offensive behavior. The process must comply with the law and university policies, and respect the rights of those involved.
The Vice Provost Student Affairs is considering the Code of Student Conduct complaint brought forward by the four faculty members and we expect to announce a decision this week.
As decisions are made, we are committed to sharing what we can, while respecting confidentiality.
Dr. Richard Florizone
President, Dalhousie University
