Sexual Violence Prevention Committee

Brock University continues to be committed to fostering a safe campus for students, staff and faculty. To that end, Brock University has convened an advisory committee for the purpose of identifying and recommending strategies to improve Brock’s policies, and processes in relation to sexual violence awareness, prevention and response.

The Brock University Sexual Violence Prevention Committee is open to members of the Brock community who are interested in joining this endeavour. Here is some pertinent information for your consideration if you are considering participating. 

Who: The Sexual Violence Advisory Committee advises the Vice-Provost, Teaching and Learning. The Committee’s effectiveness is dependent upon its diversity & inclusivity and the extent to which various student, staff and faculty groups are represented.

Where:  The committee will meet in a suitable room on Campus to be determined prior to each meeting. 

When: Once monthly with the opportunity for additional contributions via sub-committees.

If you would like to participate, please contact kveld@brocku.ca or humanrights@brocku.ca  for meeting dates and times.

  • Research & Funding
  • Services & Supports

Women's Campus Safety Grant

The Women’s Campus Safety Grant (WCSG) is funding made available to Ontario universities by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development to alleviate the costs of initiatives as they relate specifically to women’s safety. Brock University is calling for grant proposals from community members including staff, faculty, and students. This funding is overseen by the Research and Funding Sub-Committee of the Sexual Violence Prevention Committee and the Director, Health Safety, and Wellness at Brock.
