    Waterloo’s SVPRO supports all members of the University of Waterloo campus community who have experienced, or been impacted, by sexual violence. This is ongoing work that also includes educational and capacity-building programming centred on creating a campus where consent culture lives and thrives. 

    During the month of March, SVPRO has several workshops, events, and opportunities in which to engage. To encourage discussion and virtual interaction, many of these opportunities have limited group size, so early registration is suggested.
