The Sexualized Violence Prevention and Response office delivers educational opportunities to members of the campus community, supports the ongoing implementation of BRD 25-0 and provides direct support to victims/survivors of sexualized and intimate partner violence.
Support is available to all faculty, staff and students, and to people of all genders and sexual orientations. Whether the experience is historical or recent, a wide variety of supports are available:
Support through reporting processes if desired
Connection to campus and community resources
Support to those providing care to victim/survivors
We are a hybrid office. Feel free to stop by in Old Main 1486. Virtual appointments are also available for both Kamloops and Williams Lake students, staff and faculty. To schedule your appointment, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-828-5023. You are welcome to bring a support person to any meeting.
We would like for you to offer feedback on our services to better serve you.

This allows SVPR staff to support victims/survivors as well as members of the TRU community who are providing care and response to those victims/survivors, and to collect relevant data on the issue.
