Consent Awareness Week
The Athabasca University Students’ Union (AUSU) is proud to support the Possibility Seeds’ Courage to Act project, a national Consent Awareness Week with community partners across Canada, running annually during the third week of September.
Consent education and preventing sexual violence are every bit as important for online as for in-person campuses. At Athabasca University, that might look like ensuring a course outline or assignment is respectful and inclusive, or that a Discord server or Facebook group does not marginalize or overly sexualize someone without their consent.
