An independent report on misogyny, sexism and homophobia at Dalhousie University's Faculty of Dentistry in Halifax will be made public at 11:30 a.m. AT today.

Members of a task force created after a controversial Facebook group came to light in late 2014 will give their findings to media.

Dalhousie president Richard Florizone set the group up in January. He asked it to look at the culture, practices and policies within the faculty, as well as consideration of broader policies and practices at Dalhousie. 

It's led by Constance Backhouse, a university professor and university research chair at the University of Ottawa. She worked with Don McRae, a professor at the University of Ottawa, and Nitya Iyer, a lawyer with expertise in human rights and professional regulation.

It comes after an internal report last month into the same issue found a long history of sexism, homophobia and racism within the faculty.
