Preventing and Responding to Gendered Violence on Campus

The purpose of the research is to describe the nature of university policies and practices related to gendered violence at Canadian universities, in order to identify promising practices for preventing and responding to gendered violence. A description and analysis of university policies from across Canada will provide a useful context for evaluating the policies on gendered violence at Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU) and the University of Waterloo (UW), specifically for identifying gaps and effective practices. The research aims to provide SASC with an evidence base to inform future program development and collaborative work with WLU and UW.
