The integration of our offices wouldn’t be complete without a logo that reflects the values that we hold so deeply.

Queen’s University is committed to creating a campus community that is safe and inclusive for all individuals. Successful learning, living, and employment outcomes are the result of a shared responsibility and commitment on the part of students, employees, faculty, and senior administrators.
