Policy on Gender-Based and Sexual Violence
Preventing and responding to gender-based and sexual violence is a top priority for the University. Western’s Policy on Gender-Based and Sexual Violence is the foundation of our commitment to providing and maintaining an environment in which gender-based and sexual violence is not tolerated.
The University also has procedures to respond to sexual violence to support members of our campus community, regardless of where an incident of gender-based and sexual violence has occurred.
If you have experienced gender-based and sexual violence, please visit Western’s Gender-Based Violence and Survivor Support website. Or, contact Tamara Will, the Gender-based Violence and Survivor Support Case Manager at Western University.
To connect with Tamara call 519-661-3568 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tamara will provide you support regardless of if you were subjected to gender-based violence on- or off-campus, or before you came to Western. Tamara will listen and, with your consent, connect you to resources within the university and the community, explain reporting options, assist with safety planning and navigate academic and other accommodations. At no point, will you be required or pressured to follow a specific path.
