Session Overview

Sexual harassment should never be the price of admission students pay for their degree or career. Yet 1 in 2 students have been subjected to sexual harassment during an experiential learning opportunity and students, staff, and faculty across the country have shared that they feel abandoned, underprepared and undersupported. This session will respond to this concern by exploring findings from the first national research-to-action project looking at sexual harassment faced by students in experiential learning and sharing tools and resources designed to address this urgent issue.


You will leave this session with:
  • A better understanding of the issue of of sexual harassment against students in experiential learning settings, including the nature and scope of the issue in the Canadian context;
  • Free tools and resources to address this urgent issue; and
  • 3 actionable steps you can take right now to start addressing this issue in your own work.
