Statement by the University of Ottawa regarding an internal review

Posted on Tuesday, November 24, 2015

The University of Ottawa has launched an internal review after senior administration received an anonymous report of misconduct involving a student-run club that is independent of the University's Sports Services.

The misconduct is alleged to have occurred in February but the University's senior administration did not learn of it until receiving the anonymous report on Nov. 11.

Based on the contents of the report, the University made inquiries, and further investigation is required. The University has engaged an independent investigator to review the alleged misconduct and make findings of fact to assist the University in determining whether further action is necessary.

At the time of the alleged misconduct the police were contacted but did not lay charges.

The University will not be commenting further until the investigation is completed.
