Renison’s Sakura Japanese Language School Celebrates 10th Anniversary

When we think about a typical Saturday afternoon for a Renison student, we might think of late-risers getting up for lunch in the Renison cafeteria. On Saturday afternoons, however, instead of young adults strolling through the atrium, you may see a crowd of young children. They are getting ready to participate in the Sakura Japanese Language School, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Since April of 2020, Sakura students have been studying online and this milestone, like many over the past year, was marked by a special online event last weekend.

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.
