THE UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN HAS ZERO TOLERANCE FOR SEXUAL HARRASSMENT AND MISCONDUCTS
The recent exposé of sexual misconduct in Nigerian Universities is deeply disturbing and necessitates a reminder that the University of Ibadan maintains the tradition and standard of zero tolerance for sexual harassment and misconducts as contained in our Staff and Student Information Handbooks, the recently revised Gender Policy and Sexual Harassment Policy, and other allied documents as earlier approved by both the Senate and Council.
Consequently, in order to ensure that the University is proactive in preventing incidences of sexual misconducts and be assured that the University of Ibadan is a safe space for staff and students, members of the University community are hereby notified that an ad-hoc committee has just been inaugurated by the Vice-Chancellor to among others, investigate claims of sexual misconducts.
To assist with their task, kindly communicate all relevant information on the subject matter to e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; and phone number 07033281680.
Be aware that ALL claims will be processed through disciplinary organs of the University using our extant regulations and guidelines. Please, be assured that maximum sanctions will be imposed if the claims are substantiated and there will be no sacred cows, even while we ensure that there will be no witch-hunting.
I trust I can always count on your usual understanding, support and goodwill. Thank you.
