Many people can be affected by sexual violence in a variety of ways and The Brock Student Sexual Violence Support Centre (A Safer Brock) is there to help. In an effort to ensure that all Brock community members receive the support they need while dealing with sexual violence, they are recommending that all faculty add them as a resource to their class syllabi and even to their Sakai site so that our information is made accessible for anyone who needs it.
They have added a small yet informative message about their services to their website so that you can simply copy and paste the paragraph into your syllabi. This message can be found at: http://www.ASaferBrock.org/Syllabi/ . They also have a pre-designed slide with their contact info on it, feel free to use it on your Sakai sites and to share with your students via email or in lecture. It can be found at http://go.yourbrock.org/class.
They are also starting to book public education workshops for the upcoming academic semester and are encouraging professors to include one of their class talks in their course planning. They can customize the presentation to fit the needs of your class, ranging from a 3 minute presentation on what support services they offer to a 2 hour workshop on healthy relationships, consent, responding to disclosures, and supporting survivors. You can book a workshop by filling out this quick and easy form.
