Carleton launches sexual assault awareness campaign

August 31, 2012

In partnership with student groups and other institutional departments, Carleton University's Department of Equity Services and the Department of University Safety have produced 3 public service announcements dealing with sexual assault. "We need to be talking about it and we need to be educating people," says Carleton's coordinator of sexual assault services. "This project was just a wonderful way to bring together students and staff on our campus to start having this conversation." 5 years ago, a coalition of Carleton students started lobbying for a new student-run, university-funded sexual assault centre. Last January, campus administration announced it would open one, but it will be operated by university staff instead. CBC | Carleton Sexual Assault Awareness Campaign
