George Brown College values respect for all individuals: civility, diversity, dignity, equality and freedom. We are committed to maintaining a healthy and safe learning, living, social, recreational and working environment. This means maintaining a campus free of discrimination and harassment, and striving to foster an atmosphere of healthy attitudes and behaviours towards sexuality, sex and gender roles.
We will not tolerate behaviour that contributes to a hostile and inequitable learning and working environment. We take seriously our commitment to supporting those who experience sexual violence and we work diligently on campus and with community partners on programs, policies and resources to ensure that our campus remains free from sexual violence.
This webpage provides quick access to the information contained in the George Brown College Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence Policy and Protocol. It provides procedures and resources to support individuals and groups who may be directly or indirectly impacted by sexual violence or involved in working with persons who have experienced it.
I urge all members of the College community to review the Policy and Protocol to learn about options and resources available to those who require support or who wish to support others. Please help to ensure that the College remains a safe and positive space where members of the College community feel able to work, learn and express themselves in a safe environment that upholds human equality.

We hope you find the information you need on our web site.

The position of Human Rights Advisor to the President was created in 1991 as a result of work done by the College and the community on the development of the Race and Ethnic Relations Policy. The primary focus of the position is to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for students, staff and visitors. In addition, the Advisor is also responsible for matters related to employment equity and information access and privacy issues.
