A student may want to talk to someone about their experience of being sexually harassed or sexually assaulted. This is called a disclosure. A student can tell anyone they trust: a counsellor, a teacher, a friend or a community agency. When a student tells someone at Bow Valley College, they will be offered information, supports, and options.

 

Sexual Violence Support Liaison

The Sexual Violence Support Liaison can talk to students provide support, and inform about options, on and off campus, such as reporting.

When a student discloses or reports sexual harassment or sexual assault, the College may be able to make relevant and reasonable academic accommodations. This is when the College makes a specific change for one student because of a problem or barrier. It could mean changing a class time or location, test date, or delivery method (e.g. in-class to online).

The College can make reasonable and necessary steps to limit contact between the Complainant and the person who allegedly engaged in the harmful behaviour.
