If the policy was there, 100% it could have helped me

I've experienced sexual assault, actually twice, so I would say if this policy actually exists, it would help me a lot to figure out the next step I should take and make me less confused about the kind of situation I was in. [...] But I've never heard about it before I joined this session. So, it wouldn’t have helped me before, but if the policy was there, and I could have been looking at it, then 100% it could have helped me.


  • Display QR codes providing immediate access to on- and off-campus supports and policy information in high-traffic areas on campus.

  • Ensure the policy is prominently situated and easy to locate on the university website.

  • Use multiple formats to deliver accessible education about the SV/SA policy during orientation and at least once per semester
