You don’t get education on anything about consent

Participant 1: Being from the Caribbean, I don’t think there is a lot of information at all.
Facilitator: Thank you so much for that point- you just mentioned that being from the Caribbean, this is not something we normally teach our kids about. Could you elaborate on that?
Participant 1: I think it's simple, you don’t get education on anything about consent.


  • Create and promote avenues for comprehensive consent education.

  • Ensure all sexual violence prevention and response education and training opportunities actively deconstruct victim-blaming, rape myths and gender norms. Ensure these sessions take an intersectional approach to understanding sexual violence and supporting victim/survivors.

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