SFU: Get Involved!
Author: Selenna Ho
The team at Surrey Women’s Centre was thrilled to work with SFU students to raise awareness about violence against women on university campuses. Business students Scott, Joy, Neha and Riz set up booths on both Burnaby and Surrey SFU campuses, where they shared information about Surrey Women's Centre.
“There was definitely an overwhelming response from the campus community,” Riz comments. “They just walked in and said, ‘How can I be a part of this cause?’ They were lining up –five, ten people at a time. It was amazing.”
Even though the booth festivities are over, it’s not too late to get involved! You can still let us know your thoughts on safety in campus by completing this survey here. Your valuable insights will help us improve safety on the SFU campuses. With such great news, no wonder there’s reason to celebrate!

|Opening Up the Conversation|
I talk about violence against women with my friends and family. They may start off with surprise and disbelief, but after a while, they start opening up.
