Overview

Alberta’s publicly funded post-secondary institutions gathered perspectives from post-secondary students to assist them in implementing new strategies to address gender-based violence on campus.

Student feedback provided valuable, Alberta-specific data to help institutions build on the significant progress they made over the past year to update gender-based violence policies and bring awareness to gender-based violence.

Enhancing campus safety and updating and strengthening gender-based violence policies on Alberta’s campuses is an important initiative under the Alberta 2030: Building Skills for Jobs Strategy.

Stakeholder engagement

Post-secondary students were invited to complete a campus climate survey by February 28, 2023, to share their attitudes and experiences with gender-based violence, as well as their awareness of resources and supports on campus.

The survey was developed by a working group representing all of Alberta’s 26 publicly funded post-secondary institutions.

A final report with results from the survey is expected to be complete in July 2023. 

Outcomes

Student feedback will help post-secondary institutions better understand their current climate on campus and inform potential new strategies to address gender-based violence and enhance student safety.
