Prevention and Education 

We believe that prevention is our primary tool in preventing sexual violence. Our prevention paradigm involves three direct training programs:  

  • “Can I Kiss You?” (Consent, bystander intervention and how to properly support survivors) 
  • Active Bystander Intervention Training  
  • Online mandatory training program with several modules.  

All students must take the first two training programs during Orientation Week and complete one annual online training module. Staff and faculty must similarly complete one online module per year.  

If you would like to request a workshop or training for your department, team, club, class, etc., please contact us and we will gladly accommodate. Fill out our Active Bystander Training Request form.

We work closely with the student lead Sexual Culture Committee (SCC) in adapting our educational programs to respond to student needs.  

We have Security on premises 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so that any violence or aggression can be reported immediately and responded to. Security is also trained in Active Bystander Intervention Training and use a trauma informed approach when receiving disclosures.  

Response 

We provide confidential, non-judgemental clinical support to survivors in our community. We let the survivor guide our response and support based on their specific needs. Our Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Services have trained clinical staff who support survivors on their journey towards healing as well as educate them on their reporting options.
