Dean statement on allegations of inappropriate language used by a Faculty of Arts lecturer

Posted on Friday, October 2, 2020

Dear Faculty of Arts community members,

On October 1 I became aware of allegations of inappropriate language used by a Faculty of Arts lecturer during an online session.

This language was offensive and completely unacceptable in our classrooms and on our campus. The Faculty is looking into the matter to gain a full understanding of what occurred in this class.

Everyone at the University of Ottawa has the right to an environment free of discrimination and harassment, and the right to be treated with dignity and respect.

Sincerely,


Kevin Kee

Dean, Faculty of Arts
