Sexual Violence Awareness -- Education, Prevention and Supports

We’ve designed this library guide on Sexual Violence Awareness -- Education, Prevention and Supports as a jumping-off point for research and resources related to sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence.


Campus Sexual Assault 

A recent study by the Government of Canada found that a majority (71%) of students at Canadian postsecondary schools witnessed or experienced unwanted sexualized behaviours in a postsecondary setting in 2019. One in ten women included in the study experienced a sexual assault in a postsecondary setting during the previous year.

These stats are staggering and highlight the need to draw greater awareness to the issue of campus sexual violence. Being aware of the problem is an important step in addressing it.

The sources below bring together current research and statistics on campus sexual assault in North America.
