The Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Service provides confidential, trauma informed and non-judgmental support for any student who has experienced sexual violence at any time in their life.
Sexual Violence means any sexual act or act targeting a person’s sexuality, gender identity or gender expression, whether the act is physical or psychological in nature, that is committed, threatened or attempted against a person without the person’s consent, and includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, indecent exposure, voyeurism, and sexual exploitation.
Students do not need to file a report with either the University or with the police in order to access sexual violence prevention and response services.
