Human Rights @ University of Guelph: An Overview
The University of Guelph prohibits discrimination and harassment based on all grounds identified by the Ontario Human Rights Code: sex, sexual orientation, race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed (faith), age, marital status, family status and same-sex partnerships, disability, and receipt of public assistance.
The University's activities in the areas of discrimination and harassment are guided by Human Rights at the University of Guelph incorporating the Human Rights Policy and the Procedures for the Resolution of Human Rights Discrimination and Harassment Concerns, Disputes and Complaints.
There are three separate processes possible for dealing with human rights issues:
- informal resolution of a human rights concern;
- mediated resolution of a human rights dispute;
- formal complaint process.
Members of the DHR staff are available to assist all members of the University community with their questions about human right matters or to assist those who wish to raise a concern or file a complaint.
