Dalhousie University suspends 13 dentistry students from clinical activities over Facebook posts

Dalhousie University has suspended 13 students from all clinical activities of its dentistry program for allegedly posting sexually hateful messages online about female classmates.

The announcement was made Monday morning in a statement released by university president Richard Florizone, who on Dec. 17, said a restorative justice process would be used against those allegedly behind the posts.

“The suspension is necessary to ensure a safe and supportive environment for patients and classmates who participate in the clinics,” reads the statement, which is also from Dr. Thomas Boran, the dean at the faculty of dentistry.


This seems to be Jumping the Shark.

Update: Dalhousie suspensions were held off for fears of ‘potential self-harm’
