The theme for this year’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month is End Racism x End Sexual Violence. UBC’s Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Office has organized many events that students can register for through this online survey. All events are free and are open to members of UBC Vancouver, UBC Okanagan, and SFU campuses.

Thrive Month

November is Thrive Month, a time when the UBC community can come together to discuss and support our mental health.

The English Graduate community is invited to attend the screening and peer round table of The Great Disconnect on Monday, November 30. 

For more information and to sign up, please check out the GSS event page.

The Great Disconnect is a timely documentary that invites us to reflect on the relationships we have with those around us and raises the question: is it possible to overcome our modern culture of disconnectedness and rediscover how truly essential we are to one other? As in-person meetings have become difficult under current events, we hope that the screening and peer discussion of this documentary can be inspiring in re-establishing social connections and relationships.”
