THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE:
Exposing a Student to Risk


The Student Exposed

In spite of assurances from the President that he would not reveal the name of the student, the President in fact was responsible for revealing the name of the student to the Dean’s office. He did this by accident. The President and I had communicated through email. In those emails, the name of the student occurred. Then the President started to copy new email correspondence between us to others. In so doing, he accidently copied email with the name of the student to the Dean’s office.

I pointed out the error to the President. The President did not apologize to the student, and the Board took no disciplinary against the President for this violation. Quite the opposite. Apparently this exposure of the identity of the student was a good thing, for the Board Chair and Vice-Chair told the student (and later told me in regard to the student) that she was better protected because no one would dare harm her.

These responses from the President and the Board are inadequate. At least apologize to the student.
