Sexual Assault Update

University of Saskatchewan Students, Faculty and Staff:
Further to my Feb. 17 email, I want to provide you with an update regarding the report of a sexual assault against a female occurring in McEown Park student residence on the university’s Saskatoon campus in early January 2012. On March 1, 2012, a male University of Saskatchewan student was arrested by Campus Safety and Saskatoon Police Services, and was charged with sexual assault in relation to this incident. This student has been removed from campus residences and his access to the campus has been restricted.
Since the matter is now before the courts, and because of the provisions of The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, I’m not able to provide you any further details about this particular case. However, if you have any other questions or concerns, please contact my office at
David Hannah, Associate Vice-President Student Affairs
