Statement from the Department Chair on Solidarity and Commitment

Dear faculty, staff and students,

The Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies expresses, in no uncertain terms, its solidarity with communities around the world in protesting racism, racial injustice, and inequality. We denounce any form of violence against Black or racialized persons and their communities, including the police brutality perpetrated against them here in Canada and abroad. We recognize that such violence inflicts physical, psychological, and emotional damage and trauma, often with lethal consequences.

Statement from the Dean on anti-Black racism

The events of the last two weeks have brought to the foreground issues of racism against Black people in a way that we don’t always see. As a Faculty, we have begun to reflect on our own actions, inactions and systemic biases. We acknowledge that we come up short and that we desire to do better. In Applied Health Sciences, we are committed to recognizing and respecting lived experiences and we continue to work toward a world where equity, diversity and inclusion are the norm. Our Faculty prides itself for being ‘people people,’ and we take this commitment to heart.
