Georgian College has finalized its stand-alone procedure and protocol on sexual assault and sexual violence and it is now publicly available on the college’s website .
The procedure and protocol sets standards for reporting and responding to sexual violence. It also includes measures to ensure that people who make complaints are protected from reprisals, and that confidentiality is strictly observed.
This is part of a province-wide effort by the presidents of all colleges. Consultations were held with students and experts both provincially and here at Georgian.
At Georgian we take seriously our commitment to supporting those who experience sexual violence, and we work diligently to ensure that our campuses remain free from sexual violence.
All members of the College community are encouraged to review the Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence Procedure and Protocol(link) to learn about options and resources available to those who require support or who wish to support others.
