Section 8: Other Policies of Interest to Students
8.1 Campus Alcohol Policy
The purpose of this policy is to explicitly establish the general means by which alcohol abuse on the University of Manitoba campuses can be reduced or perhaps eliminated.
The University shall meet the policy's objective by: offering an alcohol education and awareness program within the scope of programs offered by or through Student Affairs; maintaining University guidelines with respect to the serving and consumption of alcohol on campus; requiring that events and facilities at which alcohol is served on campus be managed effectively and in accordance with the University guidelines and Manitoba Liquor Control Commission regulations; and monitoring the application and effectiveness of the policy and guidelines through an Alcohol Beverage Committee, which also will provide advice to the Vice-President (Administration) on relevant problems and on proposed changes to the policy and guidelines.
This policy applies broadly, and covers all activities, events, locales and facilities on the University of Manitoba campuses at which alcohol is served or is available.
A complete copy of this policy may be obtained from Student Advocacy/ Student Resource Services, 519 University Centre or The University of Manitoba Policy and Procedure Manual (Policy 240) web site.
8.2 HIV/AIDS Policy
The University and the University community shall not discriminate against any individual for the reason that he/she has AIDS or has tested positive for the HIV antibody.
This undertaking applies broadly across University services, programs, admissions, employments, facilities and accommodations.
A complete copy of this policy may be obtained from Student Advocacy/ Student Resource Services, 519 University Centre or The University of Manitoba Policy and Procedure Manual (Policy 509) web site.
8.3 Parking Regulations
All members of the University community and persons attending on property, owned and occupied or under the charge or control of the University, including roadways (the "University property") are required to familiarize themselves and comply with the Regulations.
The Regulations are in addition to any by-laws of the City of Winnipeg and any legislation and regulations of the Province of Manitoba regulating the operation or use of motor vehicles or regulating the crossing of or walking upon roadways by pedestrians.
A complete copy of the University Parking Regulations is found in The University of Manitoba Policy and Procedure Manual (Policy 206) web site.
- The "Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act" (FIPPA) and "The Personal Health Information Act" (PHIA) both apply to the University of Manitoba. The Board of Governors appointed the president as the designated head under the act. The president, in turn, has delegated her duties to the FIPPA coordinator and the FIPPA Review Committee. Should any of the University's policies conflict with FIPPA or PHIA, the provisions of FIPPA or PHIA shall prevail unless otherwise expressly provided for at law. For access to university information, including personal information, apply under the appropriate act (FIPPA or PHIA). Application forms can be accessed at: umanitoba.ca/libraries/archives/fippa
