Clubs + Our Turn Carleton

CUSA is proud to introduce Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Training for all clubs and societies in partnership with Our Turn Carleton, a student group dedicated to combatting campus sexual violence.

The interactive, peer-to-peer training was developed by students and the program is led by student volunteers. The 1.5 hour session includes:

  • Information about consent, sexual violence, and rape culture that is directly applicable to campus events and student life
  • Strategies to help prevent sexual violence by being an active bystander
  • Approaches to support a friend who discloses a sexual assault
  • Information about available sexual violence resources and reporting options on campus and in the wider Ottawa community

After a successful summer pilot program, the Clubs & Societies office will be implementing a full fall training program tied to fall funding. 2017 Clubs & Societies Funding will be dependent on a minimum of five members of each club completing Our Turn Carleton Sexual Violence Prevention and Support training. The first half of the funding will be distributed after funding presentations, and the second half will be awarded upon completion of the training during the fall semester. Training will be scheduled regularly to make it as convenient as possible for clubs to attend.
