At Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber, we work to challenge negative behaviours, attitudes and beliefs about sexual and gender-based violence. By doing so, we hope to reinforce Humber/UGH’s commitment to student safety and promote a campus culture in which there is ZERO tolerance for sexual and gender-based violence.
You can be part of this important work in the following ways:
- Promote our events and initatives throughout the year
- Invite the Consent Peer Educators to a class, an event, or initiative
- Attend Bringing in the Bystander Training or request a workshop for your class, club, group
- Follow us on social media @cpepteam
Consent Peer Educators (CPEs) provide education to students about consent, sexual assault and sexual violence. Their responsibilities include facilitation of Bringing In The Bystander (BITB), execution of outreach initiatives for consent education, and development of engagement strategies to increase awareness of the Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence Policy at Humber and University of Guelph-Humber campuses.
Bringing in the Bystander at Humber/UGH uses a community responsibility approach and a positive bystander model through the recognition of each individual as a potential bystander who can play an active role in preventing sexual assault and sexual violence. To date, our program has trained over 3000 students and 400 faculty members.
By participating in this two-hour workshop, participants will be able to define sexual violence, rape culture, and sexual consent; describe two or more strategies for intervening in sexual violence; identify barriers that may affect their decision to intervene; and develop empathy for survivors of sexual violence.
Join us in raising awareness of sexual violence and support us in building a campus free of gender-based violence. Whether you are a student, staff, faculty or community member, we have events for all.
Support us throughout the month of April, as we celebrate National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Click here to learn about how you can get involved.
