Students dissatisfied with U of T's handling of sexual violence: Report

January 22, 2019

A report by Silence is Violence, a campus advocacy group, has found that victims of sexual violence at the University of Toronto say they are still struggling to get adequate help from the institution, reports CBC. Although Ontario’s provincial government mandated that all post-secondary institutions implement prevention policies in 2017, SiV’s report says that U of T’s on-the-ground services are lacking. Angela Treglia, Director of U of T’s Sexual Violence Prevention & Support Centre, said that many students do not yet know about the service because it is relatively new. The Centre is currently working on awareness initiatives that include workshops on campus and campaigns around consent, Treglia added. CBC (ON)
