UVic's Sexualized Violence Prevention and Response Policy

On May 19, 2017, UVic’s Sexualized Violence Prevention and Response Policy comes into effect. The main contact for this policy is the Sexual Violence Intake and Resource Office, located in UVic’s Equity and Human Rights office. We are here for students, faculty and staff of all genders impacted by sexualized violence.

We believe that survivors and those impacted by sexualized violence should guide the process. We are here to connect you with support and provide information on your options. For immediate help:

1. Contact Campus Security in an emergency (phone 9-1-1 or 250-721-7599)
2. Call the Intake Office to schedule an appointment at 250-721-8786
