The Human Rights Office is an independent office, whose mandate is to promote human rights, and prevent harassment and discrimination on the grounds of: race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status, disability and gender identity as well as analogous grounds. Any member of the community can access the Advisory service of the Office to discuss issues of harassment and discrimination. Its mandate is also to educate the community about their rights and responsibilities in the area of human rights. The Education Coordinator can also assist community members looking for educational resources in the area.
The Human Rights Office works with an Advisory Council made up of faculty, students and staff as well as Kingston community members, to ensure that the community's needs in the area of human rights are being addressed adequately. It reports annually to the Queen's community through an annual report to the Senate of the University.
