Preventing Sexual Violence and Supporting Survivors at Queen's

Queen’s University is committed to providing non-judgmental sexual violence support and response.

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.


Recent changes to the Policy on Sexual Violence Involving Queen’s University Students have resulted in a new requirement for all employees (excluding Health Care Providers) who receive a disclosure of sexual violence to notify the Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Coordinator.  Information sessions have been scheduled over the summer to provide more information to those who might receive a disclosure about how to respond and about the notification process.  You can register for a session HERE.

More information will be posted on the Faculty & Staff page as it becomes available.
