Sexualized Violence Awareness Week

UVic (Office of Student Life, Equity & Human Rights), the UVSS and the Anti-Violence Project invite you to join us for a week of information, workshops, and events! Running from September 17-21, 2018 there will be a variety of opportunities for students and community members to engage in learning and support options on campus.

Join us in the conversation, and help create a safer and more inclusive campus by checking out the following events:

Tuesday, September 18

Contests, information booths, messages of support, button-making and more by Petch fountain.
11:30-2:30pm.

SVP 101: this workshop provides students with knowledge about UVic’s prevention and response approach to sexualized violence. We will talk about how UVic defines sexualized violence and consent, how to receive a disclosure and support a survivor, where to go for support, as well as what to expect if you come forward to the sexualized violence resource office wanting to make a disclosure and/or report (and the difference between the two). We will also talk about some of the things students can do to help create a supportive and inclusive campus community.
3:00-5:00
