It is time to turn our attention to preparing our physical space for our hybrid working environment. While we don’t know what the layout of our physical space on campus will look like, we need to do some housekeeping to prepare our spaces for common use. 

  • The first step is for staff who worked in the Old Medical building (Old Meds) and Summerhill to remove any personal items (except for those designated to be working on campus currently). Between now and Friday, Dec. 17, please schedule a time to retrieve your belongs with the following individuals:
  • Please complete this short Campus and Home Office survey by Dec. 3, so we can better understand the equipment Office of Advancement staff currently have, what might be needed, and any digital and paper file retrieval or long-term storage needs.  

In the new year, we will focus on equipment pick up and digital and paper files, as well as program resources storage.

Draw the Line Against Transphobic Violence webinar

This interactive 90- minute, facilitator-led webinar by Egale will help participants better recognize and intervene in harmful behaviours as they arise, while also building strategies to proactively foster school conditions grounded in consent, trans affirmation, and safer relationships overall. The impacts of COVID-19 as they relate to these issues will also be discussed. The webinar will take place on Thursday, Dec. 2, 12 — 1:30 pm.

70% of trans youth (aged 14 — 25) surveyed in a University of British Columbia study reported experiencing some form of sexual harassment or violence. Stats like this reveal the huge obstacles and risks facing trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming students due to a dangerous combination of transphobia and sexual violence present in school cultures and broader communities.
