Consent Peer Educators (CPE)s provide education to students surrounding sexual assault and violence, their responsibilities include: facilitation of Bringing In The Bystander (BITB), execution of outreach initiatives surrounding consent education, and development of engagement strategies to increase awareness of the Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence Policy at Humber/ University of Guelph-Humber campus.
Bringing in the Bystander at Humber is uses a community responsibility approach and a positive bystander model through the recognition of each individual as potential bystanders who, can play an active role in preventing sexual assault and violence. To date our program has trained over 2000+ students and 300+ faculty members and growing.
This two-hour workshop seeks to: discuss and define sexual violence rape culture & sexual consent; discuss two key responsibilities and barriers affecting a bystander; identify two direct and indirect bystander intervention strategies; and seeks to develop empathy over sympathy for those who have experienced 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.
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.

The Sexual Assault Task Force at Humber College is responsible for reviewing and updating its policy and procedures every three years. The Task Force meets regularly to plan and review sexual assault and sexual violence training, and to plan revisions to the College’s policy and procedures. The committee includes faculty staff and student government representatives from Ignite, who consult directly with students and student groups on the SASV policy and procedure.
Students were actively involved in formulating this policy and procedure and are welcome to provide input to the Task Force.
