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.

Over the past year students, staff and faculty at Queen’s have participated in a number of really interesting conversations about sexual violence.  In January 2019, we heard a presentation by Rick Goodwin, Clinical Director, Men & Healing that had a focus on the experiences of male survivors.  Recently, the AMS Social Issues Commission released a new video on the same topic.  Thank you to everyone who worked on this important project to help us continue the conversation.
