Learn how to respond to a disclosure of sexual assault

Lethbridge College continues its work to respond and support individuals who’ve experienced sexual assault or abuse, with this two-day, comprehensive training program called First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training. This training is intended to build the capacity of professionals, paraprofessionals and community members to assess and respond effectively to disclosures of sexual assault and sexual abuse. Survivors who receive a safe and supportive response to their disclosure are more likely to reach out for help from medical and counselling services, and/or to report their experience to police. This will be offered again in February and May.


Thursday, Jan. 3, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Welcome to new international students

Most students won’t start classes until next week, giving our international students an opportunity to explore a relatively quiet campus. This orientation will take place at a variety of areas around campus and will give our students a tour, not only of campus facilities and academic and wellness support services, but an introduction to Canadian culture, food, games and prizes. Lethbridge College experienced significant growth in its international student population in Fall 2018, and that growth is expected to continue in the Winter term.
