Respect and Safety is Your Responsibility!

November 22, 2018

Maintaining a respectful environment is important to Red River College. One part of showing respect is making sure that people feel safe and comfortable. All members of the Red River College Community, including students and staff, have responsibility to prevent violent or threatening behaviour.

This includes:

  • Physical violence—pushing, grabbing, slapping, hitting, kicking, or any other action that may harm another person.
  • Threatening violence or intimidating another person through words or actions
  • Sexual violence or harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Damaging property

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!

What should you do if you see someone acting in a violent, threatening, or discriminating way?

If you see it, it is YOUR responsibility.

You can:

  • Interrupt the behaviour (if it is safe to do so)
  • Help the victim get to safety
  • Tell someone—College Security Services. You may also alert College staff nearby (if you are on Campus) or call the police for incidents off-campus.

Not doing anything supports the person doing the harm. If you witness violent or threatening behaviour and do not report it, you may be subject to discipline (see College Policy S2, Student Discipline)

For more information about your responsibility for safety and respect on campus, check out these College policies:

E13 – Violence Prevention

Policy G5 – Sexual Violence

H1 – Discrimination and Harassment

S2 – Student Discipline

No Wrong Door – Where to go if you experience or witness sexual violence, harassment, or discrimination.

Experience the Manitoba Opera – Free Tickets Available for Students

November 14, 2018

Experience Mozart at the Top of His Game

Mistaken identities, parties, and ghostly powers combine with breathtaking music in one of the greatest works of opera.

In this interpretation of the timeless classic, the legendary “Don Juan” is a celebrated matador with a rock star persona. With an air of invincibility, the dashing, devilish seducer is constantly in search of a new conquest. But his incessant pursuit of women at any cost eventually earns him a dramatic punishment. Three of his female targets join forces to wreak vengeance on him. However in the end its the supernatural that demands the Don’s repentance.
