This is a priority for our government and I am committed to working with our students and institutions in their efforts to end sexual violence on campuses, because every individual has the right to be safe, respected and free from harm.”
ASEC is committed to working with the Government of Alberta, institutions, and all post-secondary stakeholders in the development of an advanced education system which is protective of the rights and safety of all students.
