Alberta university student association calls for government supports in wake of sexual violence report | Edmonton Journal
August 30, 2023 | The Council of Alberta University Students is demanding more government action in the wake of a survey suggesting 50% of respondents have experienced some form of sexual or gender-based violence as a post-secondary student. Executive director and Max Bell School graduate Alexandra Ages said she is exited with working with the ministry on next steps.
“At the end of the day, 50 per cent of students is deeply unacceptable. Even one student is one to many,” said Ages. Of that number, the report said sexual harassment is the most common experience, representing 45 per cent.
