Prevention and Response Services

Sexual violence is an issue that impacts everyone. If you, or someone you know, have experienced sexual violence, there are supports available to you. The Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator is responsible for education around consent, empowerment, and raising awareness about sexual violence, as well as providing compassionate support and trauma-informed care.

The Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator provides the following support:

Personal support

Have you experienced sexual violence? Whether it was recent or in the past, you have a place here at Trent to be heard and supported.

You will receive confidential, and compassionate support. We can work on alleviating distress, talk about coping skills, and enhance your overall wellness. Learn about your options for on and off-campus resources, and support to access them.

You can make an appointment via email ( or by phone (705-748-1011 x7792).

Organizational support

Do you have a student group on campus? Would you like to have a discussion on topics related to sexual violence and/or consent?

The Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator can attend your meeting or create a workshop just for your group. Your group can host a facilitated discussion, learn a skill like how to support a friend in need, or have an information session.
