Dear Members of the Carleton Community,

Following a broad and inclusive consultation process to review the Carleton Sexual Violence Policy, the Board of Governors approved the revised policy at its meeting on June 9, 2022.

The revised policy, as approved, is available on the Secretariat website. As part of our commitment to a transparent review process, all feedback received and all community outreach activities conducted over the last academic year are available on the consultation website.

We are committed to ensuring a safe, supportive and healthy campus for everyone, and to providing support to anyone affected by sexual violence.

The policy is one of many initiatives underway to combat sexual violence, and our work is far from over. Throughout the consultation process, we received a lot of feedback on sexual violence prevention and education on our campus. This feedback has been shared with the Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Committee (SVPEC) to help inform ongoing updates to the sexual violence prevention and education strategy, Honouring Each Other: Building consent cultures on campus, together.

I would like to thank the entire community for your engagement in this important process.


Suzanne Blanchard
Vice-President (Students and Enrolment)
