St. Clair College is committed to preventing and addressing all forms of sexual violence, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct. All members of the St. Clair College community have a right to work and study in an environment that is free from any form of sexual misconduct. If you or anyone you know needs assistance in either an emergency or non-emergency situation, the decision to seek support is a personal choice. Whether or not you choose to do so is entirely up to you. This site highlights resources and reporting options available to you.
Flip the Script
The Flip the Script™ program is a 12-hour sexual assault resistance education program for college-aged women. It is delivered in small groups of about 15-20 and is run over two days or four weeknights.
With the Flip the Script™ program we take the position that it is never a woman’s fault if someone tries to assault her – responsibility falls entirely on the person who chose to be sexually coercive. In an ideal world, we would know who these sexually coercive people are and just be able to avoid them. Unfortunately, we often don’t know who they are, and more times than not, the people who try to coerce or attack us are people we wouldn’t have expected – for example, our boyfriend, cousin, co-worker, or friend.
We know that many women will be exposed to at least one sexually coercive person in their lives, and we believe that if someone tries to coerce or hurt them, that women have the right to resist and fight back. Flip the Script helps develop our skill set for resisting sexual violence.

Bringing in the Bystander (BITB)
Bringing in the Bystander (BITB) is a prevention program based on the concept that all community members have a role to play in ending incivility, harassment, violence and discrimination. The important role that a bystander has in intervention is the basis for this unique and effective program.
The program helps participants gain the knowledge and skills needed to identify and safely intervene before, during and after instances of risky behaviors.
