Guiding Principles

The Office of Student Community Relations (OSCR) supports students impacted by critical incidents, facing personal crises or multiple complex issues. The Office of Student Community Relations supports students, parent/guardians and the community in its role as the University liaison in the management of critical incident cases. Other supports include contacting students and/or their family and assisting them by arranging appropriate referrals and support, both internal and external to York. OSCR works directly with the Office of the President, Faculties, Security Services, the Registrar and any other University unit that may be in involved. OSCR provides support for incidents such as, but not limited to, critical illness or injury of a student, student death, attempted suicide and sexual assault. OSCR advocates for students to secure academic accommodations, financial assistance, stop-outs/leaves and emergency housing. OSCR is also committed to fostering student success by upholding the behavioural expectations outlined in the Code of Student Rights & Responsibilities (CSRR). OSCR works with students to resolve complaints regarding inappropriate student behaviour either informally or through formal disciplinary processes.
