Dare to Care

Ontario Student Voices on Sexual Violence Survey | March 5 – April 2, 2018

In early March 2018, all full-time Sheridan students will receive an invitation to participate in the Ontario Student Voices on Sexual Violence Survey. This online survey is taking place at all Ontario colleges, including Sheridan.

As a Sheridan student, you have an important role in supporting the effort to end sexual violence on campus and in the community. The results of this voluntary survey will help us better understand our students’ lived experiences, and help us advance our efforts to build an informed, caring community where all members feel safe and respected.

About Dare to Care

What is "Dare to Care"?

Sheridan's Dare to Care program challenges the community to step in if someone needs help. If you see or hear something that doesn't seem quite right, do something about it — take action.

Goals of the Dare to Care program

Dare to Care challenges you to:

  • Speak up when you see or hear something concerning, and lend a hand to anyone who might need help.
  • Contribute to a vibrant campus community.
  • Model good citizenship.
  • Facilitate a culture of caring and respect.
  • Dare to Care about everyone in the community.

Don't be a bystander

Step in. Take action.

You have a crucial role to play in keeping your friends safe. No matter what the setting, if you see something that doesn’t feel quite right or see someone who might be in trouble, there are some simple things you can do to help out a friend.

Resources for Students

We're here to support you.

If you need help, or just want more information, please take advantage of the many resources available to you at Sheridan.

Sexual Assault

If it's not a clear yes, it's not consent. It's sexual assault.

All members of the Sheridan community have a right to study, live and work in an environment that's free from any form of sexual violence.
