WHAT IS A DISCLOSURE?

A Disclosure means telling someone about an experience of sexual misconduct; you can disclose to any
member of the VIU community with whom you feel comfortable. Making a Disclosure does not initiate an
investigation, but it can help you access support services.

WHAT IS A REPORT?

A Report submitted to VIU is a request for action by VIU that may involve the respondent
and may include an investigation.
