- Emergency Procedures are posted in public areas, lecture theatres and in classrooms.
- A Safe Walk Service is available in the evenings to walk with you while on campus. Contact Security at the Information Kiosk or at extension 8000 to arrange for a guard to meet you.
- A Battery Booster is available at the Information Kiosk if you need assistance starting your car.
Please take the time to read our Emergency Procedures section to get familiar with what you should do during and emergency on campus.
Preventing Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence On Campus
Fleming College believes that diversity, equity and inclusion are cornerstones of success for both students and staff. Our promise is an inclusive community where we can Learn, Belong, Become. Our actions demonstrate that we are committed to removing barriers and actively evolving a culture of respect, recognition, and accommodation, as well as a celebration of each other's' unique contributions to Fleming's learning and working environment.
Sexual assault and sexual violence are unacceptable and will not be tolerated. We take seriously our commitment to support those who experience sexual violence, and we work diligently on campus and with community partners on programs, policies and resources to ensure that our campus remains free from sexual violence.
The Sexual Violence Support Services website includes the policy and procedure, as well as information about sexual violence facts and myths, Fleming College, and community based resources, an online form to report an incident, as well as FAQ's. The FAQ's have information about relevant definitions, how to help a friend, how to receive a disclosure, reporting options, and normal and common experiences after a sexual assault.
How You Can Help:
- Don't be a bystander: There's always more than one option for a bystander. Take a stand safely and do something that you feel comfortable with.
- Stand up against sexual violence and sexism: When we ignore harmful jokes, we create an environment where demeaning words can turn into sexual violence.
- Be part of creating a safer world: Consent matters. Only yes means yes.
