External Care Options
During the event, we will provide an Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) space for you to privately use. Autonomous sensory meridian response is a pleasant, relaxing, tingly sensation prompted by certain sights or sounds, like whispering or tapping. Not everyone experiences ASMR, but those who do find it very soothing. This space will provide ASMR stimuli to help you find peace and calm.
This space is anonymous (no cameras, no participant list, no chat feature). This space will be active at all times of the event. Drop-in and out as often as you like.
Student Wellness and Support
BCcampus has been working closely with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training as well as many subject matter experts across the B.C. post-secondary system on various projects to develop resources that support the mental health and wellness of students, staff, and faculty as well as awareness, prevention, and responding to sexualized violence on campuses.
Student Perception of SV Survey – Fall 2021 Pilot
Invitation to participate in the pilot study of the Student Perception of SV Survey in Fall 2021. The Government of B.C. is conducting an important survey to better understand student perceptions of sexual violence. We are looking for two large institutions (e.g. population of over 3000 FTEs) who would be willing to run this survey with a segment of their student population as part of our test in preparation for full rollout of our survey in early 2022.
If your institution is interested in participating in the pilot survey, or if you have any questions, please contact The Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training via Kelly Chirhart at Kelly.firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to thank the working group members for their expertise, time, and commitment to creating this event.
