SUMMARY OF KEY FINDINGS

In December 2020, the provincial government convened a Roundtable to address sexual violence on campus. The Roundtable was facilitated by Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Tammy Scott-Wallace, who is also the minister responsible for women’s equality, and by Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour Minister Trevor Holder.

The Roundtable included members from public post-secondary institutions (PPSI) administration, students and survivors, student and faculty organizations, and various organizations and service providers helping to address sexual violence on campus throughout New Brunswick.

The goal of the Roundtable was to provide an opportunity, through an engagement process, to hear the voices of survivors of campus sexual violence and to identify prevention and intervention actions to address sexual violence at New Brunswick institutions. It is intended to encourage meaningful change for survivors and help reduce sexual violence in communities.

“Greater awareness of gender-based violence, sexual consent and related attitudes about what constitutes acceptable behaviour is emerging in many public spheres, including on postsecondary campuses and their online spaces. Widespread disclosures by survivors of various forms of sexual misconduct, propelled by platforms such as #MeToo, have increased the visibility of sexual assault and related behaviours and brought about discussions about their root causes (Hampson 2019; Tambe 2018).”
