When you enroll at ACTS Seminaries, you become a student of both your host seminary and Trinity Western University. We are pleased to welcome you to this unique community of learning in what we hope will be a life-changing educational experience. The TWU Student Handbook is here to help you understand who we are as a Christ-centered academic community and what standards we expect you to uphold during your studies.
ACTS Seminaries is committed to providing a community in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, free from bullying and harassment. We consider bullying and harassment to be serious offences and will not tolerate behaviour that may undermine the respect, dignity, self-esteem, or productivity of any student, faculty, staff, or administrative member. Sexualized violence is a significant and systemic issue for society and higher education in particular, and can affect anyone irrespective of gender, age, sexual orientation, abilities, and racial, cultural, or economic backgrounds. As a seminary community rooted in evangelical Christian denominations, acts of sexualized violence of any kind are completely unacceptable.
If you have any concerns about possible bullying or harassment, the Contact Persons listed below are your point of initial contact. All have been trained in dealing with bullying and harassment issues. Your initial discussion with a Contact Person is confidential. If a complaint of bullying or harassment is to proceed into a formal investigation, then the complaint must be put into written form. In the event a complaint is received regarding the ACTS Society Leadership Team, the Senior Harassment Officer shall serve as the Contact Person and will initiate an investigation through an external investigator, notifying the Executive Committee of the ACTS Board.
