Prevention & support

Walking among the trees on campus.
Prevention and support at UVic begins with believing survivors.

Everyone at UVic has the right to live, learn, work and play in an environment free from sexualized violence. We all share in the responsibility of creating that safe and inclusive environment. This means ensuring that respect and consent inform all our relationships on campus, including with friends, peers, colleagues, team members, and service providers. It is a foundational part of all interactions between students and teachers, mentees and mentors, employees and supervisors. We are also responsible for supporting those impacted by sexualized violence by understanding the support and policy options available on campus.
