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 is free from any form of sexual violence.

Sheridan’s Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence Policy and Response Protocol aim to better support victims/survivors by making information easier to find, making the reporting process clearer, and detailing what supports are available. They ensure that individuals who make complaints are believed and their rights are protected. They also hold those who have committed an act of sexual violence accountable.

I urge all members of the Sheridan community to review the Policy and Response Protocol. We all have a role to play in building and maintaining a culture that is intolerant of violence, abuse and assault and that promotes consent and respect.

Mary Preece,
President and Vice Chancellor, Sheridan
