Culture of Respect
As part of Thompson Rivers University’s continued commitment to addressing to campus sexualized violence, we have joined the Culture of Respect Collective. The Collective is an ambitious two-year program brings together institutions of higher education who are dedicated to ending campus sexual violence and guides them through a rigorous process of self-assessment and targeted organizational change. The program is grounded in an expert-developed public health framework, cross campus collaboration, and peer-led learning to make meaningful programmatic and policy changes.
A team of over 30 people have come together and committed to driving the program forward.
