Sexual assault support and resources

Campus Sexual Assault Support Advocates

Campus Sexual Assault Support Advocates (CSASAs) on our Fredericton and Saint John campuses are specially trained to support students who have experienced sexual violence. They can help you report an incident, arrange accommodations, seek medical help and much more.

If someone discloses to you that they have been sexually assaulted, follow our guidelines on providing support.
