Digging through a bunch of irrelevant pages

You have to dig through a bunch of irrelevant pages on the Saint Mary’s website to actually find the sexual violence policy. Um, and then that is basically it; there are no supporting documents around it, so it’s just floating in the air by itself and not easy to track down.
