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.
"This award has changed my life. I have nothing but sincere gratitude and hope that you understand the immense impact you have made not only on my life in university, but the opportunities you have afforded me that will follow me the rest of my life." - Kirsten
Renison friend and supporter Keith Hipel recently received the prestigious Killam Prize for his work in Engineering. The prizes, presented by the Canada Council for the Arts, are awarded to scholars who have made significant contributions to their field.
