Independent Third-Party Review

In December 2021, Rubin Thomlinson LLP was retained to conduct an independent third-party investigation of an allegation concerning the former president and a review of the University’s workplace policies and practices with respect to harassment and discrimination.

UPEI released Rubin Thomlinson’s report, called the University of Prince Edward Island Review (UPEI Review), in June 2023.

The UPEI Review contains a number of thoughtful recommendations to strengthen the University’s practices and policies and address any current conditions that do not reflect UPEI’s values. The University is committed to implementing the recommendations within the report as a step towards improving the workplace culture and learning environment on campus.
