Reporting to the Manager, Student Support and Case Management, the Gender-Based Violence & Survivor Support Case Manager supports students who have experienced sexual violence, acting as the initial point of contact and as a support. The Case Manager provides comprehensive, trauma-informed response and coordinated support services to students disclosing incidents of gender based sexual violence including, but not limited to, sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, as well as gender-based or gender-identity-based harassment.
In addition, the Case Manager provides consultation and advice to survivors and facilitates referrals for services tailored to individual needs, including providing crisis triage and referral, imparting information about the legal and dispute framework, and ensuring survivors are informed of their rights and of the available resources, both within and outside of the University. The role has accountability for providing case management and planning for identified students, and to support them as they progress through University and community support systems and processes. The role is central to the university’s efforts to increase people’s experiences of feeling safe on campus and in eliminating gender based sexual violence on campus.
