We are pleased to announce that Alicia Oeser has been appointed Director, Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Office on the Vancouver Campus.

Over the past six years, Alicia has served as the Director for the office responding to sexual and gender-based violence and harassment at both Harvard University and UCLA. She is a passionate and energetic leader with 13 years of experience working to support and advocate for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence and harassment. She also brings significant expertise in creating cultures of compassion, mutual respect and accountability.

We anticipate that Alicia will start in her new role before the end of this calendar year. In the meantime, Carol Naylor will continue in the role of Acting Director, Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Office.

We would like to thank the search committee and all those who participated in the selection process. We would also like to thank Carol for her ongoing leadership during this interim period.
