President's Message on Sexual Assault

Lakehead University is committed to providing and fostering a safe and welcoming environment in which all members of this community are treated with respect and dignity.

Sexual misconduct is always a serious issue and I want to emphasize that sexual assault, harassment or any form of sexual misconduct is not and will not be tolerated. 

If you believe that you, or someone you know, may have been the victim of sexual assault or misconduct, I want to encourage you to come forward to access the support resources that are available to you.  I want you to know that we will help you and treat you with respect and dignity.

Caring experts from within and outside the Lakehead community are available to ensure you have the supports, both immediate and longer-term, to assist you. The support resources at our University were developed to ensure you have many places to turn to. 

You are not alone. We are here to help.

Dr. Brian J.R. Stevenson
President & Vice-Chancellor
