Queen's Shift Project Student Opportunities and Initiatives

students write on whiteboardsThe results of the 2021 Shift Survey show that equity-deserving students are disproportionately impacted by issues such as harassment, discrimination, exclusion, and sexual violence.

The Queen's Shift Project events and initiatives are created and facilitated with the goal of centering equity-deserving student experiences, providing opportunities for dialogue around topics outlined in the survey, building allyship, and creating a safer and more inclusive campus culture at Queen’s.

These events & initiatives are open to all students looking to be part of the shift towards a safer and more inclusive student experience for all.

"I thought the [Sunday Supper Series] event itself was excellent, and is truly needed in the Queen's community. Plus, with the added benefit of a meal, it makes it super accessible to students so they can do two things at once and fit it into their schedule."
