VIU has launched a conversation about sexual violence.
It’s a two pronged campaign called “Know More” and it urges students to learn more about what consent is and what support services are available.
Carrie Chassels, Associate Vice-President of Student Affairs says having the conversation is important….
The campaign kicked off in Nanaimo this week, and similar campaigns will be taking place in the other VIU campuses, in the Cowichan and in Powell River.
In the spring of 2016, the province passed the BC Sexual Violence and Misconduct Policy Act which required all post-secondary institutions to develop a stand-alone sexual and violence policy and procedure.
