Overview of our Office
The UBC Investigations Office conducts arm’s length and impartial investigations into sexual misconduct and discrimination which are guided by the principles of procedural fairness, respect and a trauma-informed approach. We investigate complaints received from both campuses that fall under Policy SC17: Sexual Misconduct or Policy SC7: Discrimination.

Investigations at our Office
Our investigators each have more than a decade of conducting arm’s length investigations of sexual misconduct and other forms of serious harm, death, human rights, and regulatory practice, in university, provincial and federal contexts. Our investigations are not accusatory, or confrontational and we do not advocate for any party of an investigation. Our investigations are based on findings of fact that take the impact of trauma on memory and presentation into consideration.
