SINGAPORE – The National University of Singapore (NUS) is taking more steps to tackle sexual misconduct in the wake of several recent cases that involved its faculty members and following a recent review.
In an e-mail circular to alumni and students on Thursday (Dec 17), NUS president Tan Eng Chye laid out the measures the university will implement in the coming months to strengthen its processes of handling cases of sexual misconduct, which will include the training of staff and bystanders.
The university plans to develop a sexual misconduct policy that applies to both staff and students. It will also provide the NUS community with a report every six months on sexual misconduct cases involving its staff and/or students. But the facts of each case will be redacted to prevent victims from being identified.
