Abstract

This report examines how the University of Victoria (UVic) currently educates its Master of Public Administration (MPA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) students on workplace harassment before, during, and after their first co-operative education (co-op) placements. While the focus of the report tends to be co-op placements in the federal public service, the analysis and recommendations are also pertinent to other co-op placements. In particular, the report examines how well equipped UVic students can navigate the intersecting harassment policies of the Canadian federal government, the Government of British Columbia (B.C.), and UVic.
