Principal’s Implementation Committee on Racism, Diversity, and Inclusion

In December 2016, in an effort to initiate a broad, meaningful, and sustained conversation on racism, diversity, and inclusion at Queen’s, and to ensure that tangible and lasting change is affected, Principal Daniel Woolf established a small group, comprised of faculty, students, and staff to review past reports on these issues.

The committee will identify barriers to these recommendations, and the steps needed to remove these barriers, so that real change can take place. The Principal’s Implementation Committee on Racism, Diversity, and Inclusion began its work in early January.

The committee members are:

  • Dev Aransevia (Artsci’17), a fourth-year Global Development Studies student
  • Yolande Chan, faculty member in the Smith School of Business 
  • Hana Chaudhury, a third-year Commerce student 
  • Laeeque Daneshmend, faculty member in the Robert M. Buchan Department of Mining Engineering, cross-appointed to the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering
  • Nilani Loganathan, staff member in the Business Career Centre in Smith School of Business
  • Tim Tang, staff member in the Office of Advancement

The committee will submit to the principal, no later than March 31, 2017, a final list of actions to be implemented that identifies priorities, suggested timelines, and measures to evaluate the success of implementation.
