At Humber we work to challenge negative behaviours, attitudes and beliefs about sexual and gender-based violence. By doing so, we hope to reinforce Humber’s commitment to student safety and promote a campus culture in which there is ZERO tolerance for sexual and gender-based violence. Some of the major interventions will be launched during September and will continue throughout the year. Please keep referring back to our website for updates and additional information.

Through in-depth discussion of issues and role-playing of common violence scenarios, participants come to understand how they play a part in proactively preventing sexual and relationship violence, how they can help survivors get the help and support they need, and how they can contribute to the creation of a campus climate that reflects a commitment to safety for all.
