The BCIT Student Association Advocacy Office offers confidential, unbiased, and non-judgmental support and services to all BCIT students. In our collaborations with BCIT, we value fairness, transparency, and accountability, and we strive to uphold these values as we advocate for all students. We consider our office to be a safe(r) space that is inclusive to students of all backgrounds, including but not limited to, their abilities, genders, orientations, and creeds. Our office does not tolerate harassment, racist remarks, discrimination, bullying, or violence of any kind. We aim to empower students to use their voices to self-advocate and exercise their rights.
The Advocacy office is committed to providing confidential services, and all information shared with the Advocacy team is used in conformity with BCITSA and BCIT policies and procedures. While your personal information will not be shared outside the Advocacy Office without your consent, there may be times when your information is shared with the Wellness and Advocacy Manager, for the purposes of guidance or consultation. In situations where we believe you may be of harm to yourself, someone else, or the BCIT community, we have an obligation to report this information even without your explicit consent.
