York University’s Centre for Human Rights welcomes Krista Hunt into the position of learning specialist and advisor, sexual assault prevention education.
Hunt joined the CHR team on Aug. 18. In her new role, she will assume responsibility for sexual violence prevention education initiatives and supporting policy and procedural review in the area of gender-based violence.
A long-standing York U community member, Hunt has been involved in many different anti-violence education and prevention projects over the years, including working as a student security escort during her undergrad, doing research on violence against women in graduate school, conducting METRAC safety audits with her university classes, and now supervising undergraduate students who are designing and initiating anti-violence initiatives with their peers.
Hunt has spent 12 years designing and delivering courses on gender-based violence, and in 2014-15, she was awarded a teaching grant to develop a course called Violence on Campus: Strategies for Change at York.
