University of Alberta Sexual Violence Policy
The Sexual Violence Policy was approved by GFC in June 2017. It plays a vital role in ensuring a safe and respectful learning and working environment.
As defined in the policy, sexual violence is any sexual act or act of a sexual nature, or act targeting sexuality, whether physical or psychological, committed without consent. Sexual violence is a complex and serious problem in society and on university campuses. Sexual violence can affect individuals of all gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations, as well as those from all ages, abilities, racial, cultural and economic backgrounds. Through this policy, the University of Alberta recognizes its responsibility to reduce sexual violence in the University community. The university aims to do so by fostering a culture of consent and support through education, training and policy. The University recognizes the possible effects of trauma on those who have experienced sexual violence and supports the efforts of individuals to seek support and recover.

Working Alone Policy
The Fine Arts Building hours are as follows and subject to change:
- 7:30 AM - 9: 30 PM on weekdays*
- 7:30 AM - 8:00 PM on weekends*
- The building is closed on holidays
- Please note restricted corridors are locked at 4:30 PM during the week and locked throughout the weekend. Card access is required.
Students (and staff) may choose to work alone after hours, particularly those students using practice room or rehearsal space. While the department strongly encourages students to practice, students are not required to be on the premises after hours. Students choosing to work alone should take all necessary precautions to ensure their own safety. This includes: a) using the "buddy system" and/or notifying someone of their intent to work alone by communicating the time and exact location; b) being aware of emergency protocols, including the location of emergency phones, medical devices and/or exits; and, c) utilizing University programs, such as "SafeWalk" as a precaution. We strongly recommend that all students working in the building after hours keep their mobile devices on their person.
Students should be vigilant in their surroundings. This includes reporting suspicious individuals and/or activity to UAlberta Protective Services. Emergencies should be reported to Edmonton Police Services via 911.We also ask students to carry their ONEcard at all times in order to access restricted areas. Please do not prop doors open and be wary of "tailgating" (when an individual follows you through a locked door without utilizing a card / key). Valuables should be kept on your person at all times.
