It’s more to do with educating

I would to add that, educating or creating awareness about sexual violence or sexual assault should happen even before reporting. Like, education and awareness are done after the reporting, but I feel like this is something that people should be educated about and aware of whether it happens or not. This will help control it from happening. Like, it doesn’t end after reporting, it's much more than reporting or disclosing your name, it's more to do with educating and creating awareness. That’s my personal opinion.

Recommendations

  • Create and promote avenues for comprehensive consent education.

  • Use multiple formats to deliver accessible education about the SV/SA policy during orientation and at least once per semester
