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.

  If you need help, staff at Queen's and our community partners remain available to assist.  Most offices are closed and face to face meetings are not taking place but we are responding to email, making phone calls and arranging video meetings.  We are here and thinking of all of our students and staff/faculty at this time. 

Students can access support by contacting the resources listed in the red side panel on this page and below.

"Due to the rapid escalation of issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the completion of the consultation process for the Policy on Sexual Violence Involving Queen’s University Students will be deferred until further notice to ensure all faculty, staff, and students have adequate time to reflect on the Policy and provide thoughtful feedback,” Teri Shearer, Deputy Provost (Academic Operations and Inclusion).
