Sexual violence support and education website brings together key resources

April 1, 2019 — 

Sexual violence affects people of all ages, sexual orientations, genders, gender identities, abilities and relationship statuses. At the U of M, we are committed to ensuring a respectful work and learning environment for all. We want to build a safe and inclusive campus community where survivors of sexual violence know they can receive the supports they need to succeed, both academically and personally.

As part of the university’s commitment to supporting a culture of respect, safety and inclusion, the sexual violence support and education website has been updated and reorganized.

The website, just one of many ongoing initiatives, serves as a hub for all information and resources relating to sexual violence at the U of M. The site will be updated as information and new resources arise.

The website focuses on five themes: get support, give support, report sexual violence, understanding consent and sexual violence, and prevention and education.

Get support outlines steps a person can take if they have experienced any form of sexual violence. There are many supports available and people who can help.

Give support provides some key suggestions and resources to on providing a supportive response to a disclosure of sexual violence.

Reporting sexual violence shares options available for individuals who have chosen to report an incident of sexual violence.

Understanding consent and sexual violence serves as a general educational resource for members of the university community seeking information and support for all forms of sexual violence, including sexual assault and sexual harassment.

Prevention and education includes various resources that support building a culture of consent within our community, and preventing sexual violence through education and awareness. This includes the Guides that were created for our community members on intimate or sexual relationships, policy reviews and other initiatives.
