In partnership with Women and Gender Equality Canada and the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills, BCcampus is providing project management on the Intersectional Sexualized Violence Project, which focuses on the impacts of sexualized violence on specific student populations, including Indigenous, international, and graduate students. As well as on an identified resource gap, technology-facilitated sexualized violence (TFSV), which recognizes that sexualized violence is not limited to in-person contact, but can be facilitated through technological means, including but not limited to cellular devices, computers, gaming platforms, and learning management systems.

A circle and square intertwine around the words "Intersectional Sexualized Violence Project". The intersecting lines and changing colours represent the project's four main focus areas: Indigenous, international, and graduate students as well as technology-facilitated sexual violence.

The first phase of the project focused on environmental scans to help identify existing resources and the gaps and needs in the B.C. post-secondary sector in the following areas related to preventing and responding to sexualized violence:

  • Indigenous students
  • International students
  • Graduate students
  • TFSV

The next phase will focus on the adaptation or development of sexualized violence training resources based on the findings of the environmental scans. BCcampus is seeking qualified individuals to work with BCcampus and the Intersectional Sexualized Violence Advisory Group on the development and/or adoption of openly licenced sexualized violence training resources and facilitation guides.

This expression of interest is to identify curriculum writers for sexualized violence resources to support international and graduate students as well as TFSV.

Review and finalize pre-pilot: August–September 15, 2023
