Brock's Sexual Assault Response Protocol

Brock's Sexual Assault Response Protocol

Brock University has always been committed to fostering a safe campus for students, staff and faculty. We achieve this with a range of policies and resources aimed at creating and maintaining a learning and work environment free from discrimination and harassment. A large part of Brock’s efforts in promoting respect for the dignity of every individual has included developing and implementing programs that educate and train the Brock community to address and prevent sexual assault and harassment.

We have had a standalone sexual assault policy in place to respond to the needs of survivors, and to ensure that timely supports and services are always accessible. That policy remains a key pillar of our safe campus programming. As such, it will be reviewed and updated this spring in consultation with students, first responders and law enforcement officials, and support organizations.

Student, staff and faculty safety remains our highest priority, and we are dedicated to continuing to work together to prevent and respond to sexual assault and support survivors. We will continue to keep the community updated on this most serious issue as we move forward in enhancing our safe campus culture.

If you think you have been sexually assaulted:

1. After an assault has occurred, go to a safe place. This might be the home/room of a friend or a family member, a residence don, or any place where you can find physical safety and receive emotional support.
2. If you feel unsafe, desire to report the assault, or want to discuss any aspect of your experience, our community members residing in the Niagara Region are strongly encouraged to immediately contact the Niagara Region Sexual Assault Centre (NRSAC) using their 24-hour crisis line at 905-682-4584
3. If you have any immediate security/safety needs or believe there is an ongoing threat to others in our community, you are encouraged to immediately contact Campus Security Services for assistance at 905-688-5550 x3200 or via any of the Emergency Phones on campus.
