Consent Team educates new students

Every fall, incoming first-year Carleton students are presented with information they need to adjust to university. On Sept. 2—the first day of Fall Orientation—students and parents met the “Consent Team,” a new initiative to fuel a conversation about consent and sexual violence on campus. The team was championed by Kelsey Gilchrist, the co-chair of Our Turn Carleton, a student-led sexual violence prevention initiative.

According to Jenna Lambert, the program co-ordinator of Sexual Assault Support Services at Equity Services, the team is made up of 16 student volunteers. Lambert said in an email that the team aims to inform students and their parents about campus resources and […]
