snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ Langara College aspires to be a safe place for everyone. The College welcomes students, staff, and faculty from across British Columbia, Canada, and from around the world. The College community is diverse, and includes Indigenous people, Black and people of colour and people of different abilities, genders and sexual identities.

The College recognizes that all members of the College community should be able to work, teach, and learn in an environment free from sexual harassment, discrimination, and sexualized violence and that everyone has the right to exercise full control over their own bodies, and to engage only in sexual activity to which they consent.

The College recognizes that sexualized violence affects everyone regardless of sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, or relationship status. The College accepts that sexualized violence disproportionately affects historically marginalized communities, particularly those who experience the intersection of multiple identities such as, but not limited to, Indigenous women, women with disabilities, and racialized women.

The College strives to create a culture of safety for everyone at the College and seeks to address incidents of sexualized violence with dignity and respect, support all persons affected, and minimize harm to members of the college community.


Langara's Sexualized Violence Response policy prohibits all forms of sexualized violence or misconduct that occurs:

  • on or off Langara College premises, including technology-facilitated behaviour, or at College-sponsored academic, athletic, or social events, and where the interaction between the individuals involved is an extension of their relationship to Langara College; 
  • that has or might reasonably be seen to have an adverse effect on, interfere with, or threaten the proper functioning of the College, its mission, its reputation, or the rights of a member of the College community to use and enjoy the College's learning and working environments; or 
  • that raises concerns about the safety or security of an individual or individuals while they are on campus premises or participating in off- campus College programs, events, or activities.

We all have a part to play in responding to and preventing violence on our campus. You can learn your role and responsibility you reviewing this website.
