A Note of Care and Support

Dear Renison Campus Community,

We know that 2020 has been a challenging year for many reasons. We want to acknowledge and call attention to the fact that so many of these challenges have disproportionately impacted our BIPOC community. We are reaching out today with a virtual note of care and support to our community, along with a reminder to you of resources and supports that are available.

In support of #ScholarStrike

Dear Renison Community,

Renison University College supports the #ScholarStrike action that is taking place at colleges and universities across North America on September 9 and 10.

We respect and support the rights of all faculty, staff and students who wish to participate in this action. This aligns very closely with the work that Renison has been pursuing in this area including the national anti-racism conference that Renison hosted last November, the anti-racism dialogue hosted by Dr. Kofi Campbell two weeks ago, and the ongoing development of Renison’s anti-racism task force, currently being led by Dr. Kathy Hogarth. We recognize that change can not happen without real action.
