Students from across Nova Scotia have come together to set the priorities for StudentsNS for the 2015-2016 year. StudentsNS has prioritized six areas for this year in its 2015-2016 Annual Plan: government relations and advocacy, diverse representation in student leadership, inclusion of colleges, bilateral agreements and outcome measures, better engagement of students, and internal policies.
For Immediate Release
Halifax, N.S. – With the recent sexual assault charges that were laid on a student at Acadia University, students across the province are reminded again of the importance of ending the rape culture on our campuses.
StudentsNS has been committed to this issue and continues to lead the discussion around the prevention of sexualized violence and the elimination of the rape culture on our campuses in Nova Scotia. StudentsNS continues to support Acadia University Students’ Union at this time and recognizes that this is not an isolated incident. Many students do not report such instances illustrating one of the biggest challenges surrounding sexualized violence.
