It’s really important to educate yourself

I think other than just being able to comply with them, it's also important for you to educate yourself about it. Like, you should be updated about what can be done, how you can deal with the problems, because sometimes, what we know might not be working the right way and if you are well-educated, or if you are up to date about things, that might help. If we were not up to date about all these policies that are in our university, we might not have thought about reporting or even disclosing. So, it's really important to know what's up to date and educate yourself.


  • 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
