It’s important for all students to know

Participant 1: I haven’t seen this policy and I think it’s important for all students, girls and boys, to know this information; because sometimes when someone suffers this, they don’t know what to do [...]. I think it’s important to make campaigns and know more about this and to share the information. [...]
Participant 2: I think the students who have to be more aware of it is the new students because, well - think about it - [...] if a situation like this comes up, the majority of them would have no idea on what to do, you know? So, I think having this sexual violence policy available in residences, for instance, where most students live, would be very, very good.


  • 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
