The Students’ Union has been working diligently with our partners at the University to determine how we can best support our students impacted by the ongoing events in Palestine & Israel. We aim to foster a safe environment for all of our students and ensure they have the tools needed to succeed.
The University has highlighted the following supports they offer for students whom the conflict has impacted:
- The Centre for Students Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
- Multi-Faith Resource Team (which provides spaces for community and healing spaces)
- The Office of Dispute Resolution and Sexual Violence Response; and,
- Campus Wellness
The Students’ Union will also continue to work with the institution concerning its Strategic Plan for Equity, Diversity & Inclusion to ensure that all lenses, in this instance, are accounted for when formulating policies. We intend to build off of the work they are doing to be better for all our students. We hear you, and we support you.
