Welcome to the Anti-Bullying/Personal Harassment Prevention Campaign!
Centennial College is committed to proving a safe and secure working and learning environment. As part of this ongoing commitment, we are proud to launch our Anti-Bullying/Personal Harassment Prevention Campaign. This Campaign is part of our Violence Prevention Policy and Program and demonstrates our leadership in creating a safe and supportive community by enhancing the safety and well-being of our employees and students.
The root cause of many recent issues of violence on school campuses has been bullying or personal harassment type issues. In an effort to raise awareness and prevent these issues from escalating to violence, Centennial has developed this campaign to help address the issue through awareness and education. The aim of the web site is to provide people with response options, identify where they can get help, how to report it, self awareness information about bullying and information on the common types of bullying behavior in the workplace, at school and on the internet.
Awareness, education and prevention are critical components of the Anti-Bullying/Personal Harassment Prevention campaign along with capital improvements to the campus (i.e. lighting improvements, emergency phones, safety mirrors, etc.) and other risk reduction efforts. The web site also aims to coordinate victim services, campus safety and security and health services available to students and employees.
The Anti-Bullying/Personal Harassment Prevention campaign was established in August 2009, through the generous financial support of the Women's Campus Safety Grant Program through the Ontario Ministry of Training and Education. This funding has been an ongoing strategy since 1990 and is a province wide effort to promote a variety of safety initiatives for women on campuses across the province.
