As an SFU or FIC community member, if you have been named as a respondent in a report of sexual violence and misconduct (that is, someone alleges you have caused them harm), SFU’s Sexual Violence Support & Prevention Office will help by providing you with information and options to support you in making informed decisions. We will streamline access to supports and services both on and off campus.
