Information about Sexual Awareness Activities

Our Counselling and Accessibility Office works closely with students, our campus and community partners to end sexual violence and to take down rape culture. The College hosts interactive and educational events at least twice a month. Although Sexual Awareness Week is one week, this is only the kick off to an entire year of programming that is aimed at creating a safer, survivor-centred campus for all students.
