Wellness & Safety Resources

Being a student is hard! The wellness of our students remain our top priority. Even though we are not experts, we would love to share with you these resources that are connected with UBC. We hope you’ll find them helpful!

Survivor’s Guide
Navigating the sexual misconduct reporting process through UBC is a topic that many students are unfamiliar with. CUS Clarify’s guide has been reviewed and edited with the support of both SVPRO and UBC’s Investigations Office. It contains both on-campus resource information (e.g SVPRO), as well as detailed summaries of the steps involved in reporting sexual misconduct through UBC’s Investigations Office.
