UVic launches sexual violence prevention office

September 6, 2017

The University of Victoria says that it is creating a new office and staff team to support students with sexual violence prevention and education. The school’s sexualized violence education and prevention resource office will give students access to a central campus locations where they can drop by to find out more information about sexual misconduct policies, report an incident, or seek support. “UVic had policies and resources in place to address sexual harassment in the past, but this new policy and new office address the issues more directly and effectively with increased education and training,” Leah Shumka, Sexualized Violence Education and Prevention Co-ordinator at UVic. CBC | UVic
