Meet the Vice Provost Students: Dr. Nona Robinson

"There is a lot to navigate as a student and we're here to support you throughout your academic journey. As the Vice Provost, Students, I’m here to advocate for our students and help connect you to the services we offer in the Division of Students. Learn more about all of the student services available.

I’d also love to connect and get to know each other. If you have something you want to chat about, join me and others for a walk and/or hangout. Let’s talk about York, get to know each other and explore the Keele campus.

Feel free to reach out anytime and I'm happy to connect at vpstudents@yorku.ca."

OSCR provides advice, referrals, training, alternate dispute resolution methods, judicial processes (local adjudication, tribunals) and critical incident support. OSCR is also responsible for administering the Code of Student Rights & Responsibilities, which fosters student success by outlining behavioural expectations at York University.

The Centre is committed to fostering a culture where attitudes and behaviours that perpetuate sexual violence are rejected, survivors are supported, community members are educated and those who commit incidents of sexual violence are held accountable. They facilitate support, services and accommodations for those who have experienced sexual violence, based on the needs and wishes of the person disclosing/reporting. Additionally, The Centre offers training and education to the University community -- aimed at preventing sexual violence and improving supports to survivors.
