Ryerson’s Office of Sexual Violence Support and Education (OSVSE) works from the premise that consent comes first. The OSVSE provides support to the survivors who guide a process while counsellors provide options. How people experience, heal from, and address sexual violence is shaped by the multitude of social locations (for instance, class, sexuality, gender). This workshop discusses the various supports, information, education, statistics, reporting and complaint mechanisms found in Ryerson’s policy on sexual violence approved by the Board of Governors in June 2015.
