Vandalism Incident

Recently, BCIT’s Safety, Security and Emergency Management (SSEM) team has been alerted to unacceptable activity in the women’s washroom located near the front doors of the Gateway building on the Burnaby Campus. This includes sexually explicit graffiti and defacing of BCIT property and directly violates our policies. We take this seriously, have reported it to the RCMP, and have launched a comprehensive internal investigation.

Our number one priority at BCIT is to ensure the health and safety of our staff, students, and faculty. By working, learning, and living together we create a stronger and safer community. In that light, I want to remind all community members to be mindful of their surroundings and please report any suspicious behavior as follows.

With the beginning of a new semester, I also want to remind the BCIT community that we have extensive safety and security measures in place at all of our campuses. 

Thank you, 
Glen Magel 
Director, Safety, Security & Emergency Management
