The University of Regina is committed to minimizing or eliminating the risk of violence to members of the
University community. The University recognizes the destructive nature of violence in our society, and its
responsibility to educate and inform the University community on violence and violence prevention.
Violence is defined as the attempted, threatened or actual conduct of a person which causes or is likely to
cause injury, and includes any threatening statement or behaviour that gives any person reasonable cause to
believe that they are at risk of injury (the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, Section 37).
The University of Regina will not tolerate or condone any form of violence and will make every reasonably
practicable effort to ensure that no member of the University community is subjected to violence in the
University environment. The University will act quickly to investigate or have Law Enforcement Officers
investigate any reports of violence, and will take appropriate corrective action where violence is substantiated.
