Our commitment to survivors

Showing national leadership in tackling the problem of sexual assault on college campuses
Proving survivors of sexual violence with important online resources that reflect UWB's commitment to preventing and responding to sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, relationship violence, domestic violence, stalking and sexual harassment

Help a Friend
If a friend has experienced sexual misconduct, there are ways you can provide support.
Learn about Title IX
UWB is supported by a Title IX Coordinator who provides support across the University relating to compliance.
Creating a cultural shift
Addressing sexual assault requires a culture shift and comprehensive approach to violence prevention that:
- Acknowledges that the vast majority of sexual assaults are perpetrated by a person or persons known to the victim
- Recognizes the complex and often co-occurring relationship between alcohol and drugs and sexual assault
- Challenges the propensity for victim-blaming
- Promotes the acceptance of – and affirms each individual’s right to – a broad spectrum of sexual choices
- Understands and clearly defines the meaning and nature of consent
Taking a community approach
Addressing sexual assault requires a holistic approach. We aim to raise awareness of issues, resources and responsibilities among all members of the campus, providing each with the skills and empowerment to promote a caring community in which students are safe from sexual assault, harassment, and discrimination.
