Sexual Violence Prevention and Response

You will be listened to, respected, and believed!

You do not have to make a report to access University services.

The University of Regina Sexual Violence Prevention and Response (SVPR) coordinator can assist either survivors or their supports in person, or by telephone or e-mail. Supports include:

  • listening and respecting the survivor’s choice in recovery;

  • accompaniment to appointments or in seeking medical attention;

  • referrals to both on and off campus resources; and

  • advocate for deferrals, extensions and/or other academic accommodations, and general information.

The SVPR coordinator supports sexual violence prevention programing and workshops that educate and encourage a community of responsibility. Bringing in the Bystander workshops teach bystanders the skills necessary to both identify the continuum of violence and intervene in a safe way. The University also provides opportunities to share information on sexual violence, healthy relationships and consent.
