Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Office
We (SVPRO) would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we gather is the traditional and unceded territory of the Abegweit Mi’kmaq First Nation.
UPEI established the Cross-Campus Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Task Force in 2017 to build on previous protocols and develop a formal, stand-alone policy on sexual violence prevention and response. The Sexual Violence Policy is now in place and UPEI has its first Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Office (SVPRO).
