"The complaint alleges incidents of sexual harassment of female servers, misogynistic references to women and disparagement of Indigenous people at TRU and in the community, among other purported incidents."
"The complaint alleges discriminatory conduct, discriminatory statements and/or harassment on the part of Matt Milovick, the university’s vice-president of finance and administration, and Larry Phillips, the university’s associate vice-president of people and culture."
“And what I’ve heard from those complainants, what we learned, is that the concerns they expressed were not investigated,” Kamphuis said.

“And that there was little or no follow-up. Furthermore, Larry was promoted to the position of AVP people and culture after both Matt, the VP finance who he reports to, and the president were aware of serious concerns and complaints. So those pieces were obviously of great concern.
Milovick and Phillips are among the highest-ranking officials at the university.
Milovick leads TRU’s administrative operations and, on the university’s organizational chart, is one step down from the top, a slot occupied by president and vice-chancellor Fairbairn. Milovick manages TRU’s $238-million budget.
Phillips oversees hiring and firing of a university with 2,000-plus employees, including faculty, support staff and administration. He is also responsible for championing values across the institution."
