Open to all MacEwan University employees, the Sexual Violence Support Guide (SVSG) program provides faculty and staff with the skills and support they need to be leaders in sexual violence prevention and response on campus.

The SVSG program includes a 14-hour comprehensive curriculum that aims to:

  • Provide staff and faculty with a better understanding of sexual violence as a public health and social issue
  • Teach participants to appropriately respond to disclosures of sexual violence and to make referrals to campus and community resources in a supportive, trauma-informed way
  • Empower participants to play an active role in sexual violence awareness and prevention.

Upon completion of the program, you may choose to become a Support Guide. In this capacity, you stay engaged with the Office of Sexual Violence Prevention, Education and Response (OSVPER) by providing support and information to colleagues and students about issues, policies, procedures and resources related to sexual violence. Support Guides also commit to attending biannual meetings, supporting OSVPER events and initiatives and working to create a culture of consent on campus, in the classroom and outside the university.

To book a workshop or training session, or to learn more about these programs, contact the Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Coordinator.
