In recent weeks, the University of Waterloo has spoken out against racism in all forms. We have taken action by forming the President’s Anti-racism Taskforce to advance equity for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) on our campus.
On June 6, in response to a change.org petition on racism on our campus, we issued a statement in which we wanted to address the well-justified hurt and concerns of the petitioners. With regret, our statement did not live up to our own standards for promoting free inquiry.

We have restored this statement to our website in an effort to ensure that all actions taken by the University of Waterloo are transparent and easily accessible.
The University of Waterloo made this statement without consulting Black faculty members and then we removed it from the archives on June 16 when we issued a new statement. We apologize unreservedly because we recognize that this statement, and its removal, are mistakes that did harm to Black faculty members who research and teach about blackness.

New student counsellor positions and a digital virtual care tool will be created to expand the wellness service offerings for co-operative education students at the University of Waterloo. The new services come at a time of heightened uncertainty for students, as rapid changes in response to COVID-19 compound the stresses associated with co-op terms.
