The ODEPD is guided by a number of University of Calgary policies and procedures, related to Protected Disclosure. If you have any questions about these policies and how they related to you, feel free to contact our office.

Sexual Violence Policy

"This policy is a fundamental element in creating and sustaining a safer campus environment for all community members. It is an important step in identifying how we respond to incidents of sexual violence, including supports available to those who have experienced or witnessed sexual violence, or those who are alleged to have committed sexual violence. It provides clear response procedures and timelines, defines complex concepts, and addresses incidents that occur off-campus in certain circumstances." Dr. Dru Marshall, Provost and Vice-President (Academic)

Protected Disclosure Procedure

This procedure outlines the process by which individuals may make a Protected Disclosure, the process by which the University will respond and the process by which individuals will be protected from reprisals. If you have questions about this procedure, please contact Shirley Voyna Wilson

Research Integrity Policy

The purpose of this policy is to promote integrity in research, ensure compliance with applicable law, ensure that research is conducted in accordance with the university's expectations for ethical conduct, and promote an awareness of research ethics within the university community.

Investigating a Breach of Research Integrity Procedure

The purpose of this procedure is to outline the process by which an allegation of a breach of the Research Integrity Policy is investigated.

Harassment Policy

The purpose of this policy is to enhance awareness of the rights and responsibilities of individuals subjected to, or who become aware of, harassment.

Code of Conduct

The university's mission of teaching, research and service to community requires a shared commitment to the core values of the university as well as a commitment to conduct university activities ethically. The purpose of this policy is to communicate the university's expectations with respect to the behaviour of employees, academic staff members, students, postdoctoral scholars and appointees.

Student Non-Academic Misconduct Policy

This policy communicate the university's expectations with respect to student behaviour, protects the safety and security of the university community, and preserves the orderly operations of the university.

Electronic Communications Policy

The purpose of this policy is to ensure appropriate use of the electronic communications system, and reduce the risk of loss, corruption, and mismanagement of, or unauthorized access to information.

Aboriginal's Student Policy

This policy has been written in response to recommendations published in the Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (Minister of Supply and Services Canada, 1996) and First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Education Policy Framework (Alberta Learning, February 2002). These documents advocate the development of policies, programs, and services that address equitable access, recruitment, retention, and completion rates for Aboriginal people in the postsecondary education system.

The purpose of this policy is, therefore, to ensure the provision of a University learning environment that encourages full access, participation and success for Aboriginal students, and enriches all aspects of the intellectual and cultural life of the University of Calgary through full participation of Aboriginal students.

Workplace Violence Policy

The purpose of this policy is to ensure that workers understand that Workplace Violence is considered to be a serious offence and will not be tolerated, those subjected to Workplace Violence have access to assistance in order to pursue a complaint, and those subjected to or aware of Workplace Violence are advised of available recourse.
