Sexual violence

Sexual Violence is a continuum of non-consensual sexual contact and behaviour which includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, sexual exploitation, indecent exposure, and voyeurism.

Brock University recognizes that Sexual Violence is a serious and complex issue that can adversely affect Brock Community Members. Brock University unequivocally prohibits and will not condone, tolerate, or ignore any form of Sexual Violence that affects the work and learning environment at the University.

Brock University also recognizes that Sexual Violence can have serious and lasting effects on the physical, mental, and emotional welfare of Survivors. We will provide access to supports, services, and appropriate accommodation for Brock Community Members who are affected by Sexual Violence. If you feel you or someone you know has experienced sexual violence, please reach out to a representative of Human Rights and Equity and we’ll help you find the support you need.

Brock University has adopted a Sexual Assault and Harassment Policy to address reports and incidents of sexual violence that affect the work and learning environment at Brock. For more information, Human Rights & Equity has prepared a Sexual Assault and Harassment Policy – Introduction and FAQ. If you have any further questions on the Policy, please contact us.
