Consent & Safer Sex

Sex and sexual assault are two topics that are almost unavoidable on university campuses. Extracted from our Occupational Health and Safety policy, the TCSA is interested in the health and safety of its employees and members, as well as visitors to the university community.

In order to tackle the ongoing struggle of sexual assault prevention work in the University and College context, the TCSA shall take appropriate measures to protect and promote the health and safety of employees, students and visitors and to provide a safe, healthy work and study environment. Such campaigns/initiatives include: Draw the Line and Cover Me.

Cover Me

Through this initiative, the TCSA will continue to provide safer sex kits and promote safer sex and sexual health awareness to students. Please visit the TCSA office if you have questions about our safer sex kits, and if you need access to a safer sex kit.

Draw the Line

The Draw the Line campaign is an initiative set forth by the Government of Ontario, through the Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres that addresses sexual violence. The focus of this campaign is to not simply react to the consequences of sexual violence, but to prevent sexual violence from happening in the first place. This campaign represents the ethnic, linguistic, cultural, sexual, economic, and geographic diversity of Trent University by engaging individuals in a dialogue about sexual violence. The campaign challenges common myths about sexual violence and equips bystanders with the information on how to intervene safely and effectively.
