Consent Workshops

Our consent workshops run at least once a month from September to April. The workshop is two hours long and will be held at the University of Victoria. They are free of charge, open to students and community members, and have a no late-comer policy.

Whoa what a month! We did: a referendum, 3 Men's Circles, 5 workshops, 20 support sessions (905 min and a record # of sessions). Thanks again for supporting our work with a Yes in the referendum. We're stoked to be able to keep up this pace with more staffing hours!! #uvic #uvss

From the Martlet Archives: A 1998 news story detailing the first paid coordinator for the AVP (what was once known as the Open UVic Resource Sexual Assault Centre). Recently students voted on increasing the AVP's fee levy for the first time since 1998.

3955 students voted in the referendum (~21%). 74% of those who voted voted “yes” to the few increase.

The results are in: the @AVP_UVic referendum has passed. 21 per cent of eligible students voted, 74 per cent of whom voted in favour.
