Student Support and Resources

Queen's students can access the following support resources as needed.

Local Supports and Resources

Human Rights Advising and Supports

  • Queen’s Human Rights Advisory Services - Human Rights Advisory Services provides advice to Queen’s community members concerning human rights issues arising at Queen’s and advocates for human rights practices and policies that respond to the needs of Queen’s equity-seeking communities.
  • IN-SIGHT is an anonymous harassment, discrimination, or bias/hate incident submission form which allows members of the Queen's community to submit incidents of harassment, discrimination, hate, and violence targeting personal characteristics protected under the Ontario Human Rights Code (e.g., race, religion, sexual orientation, disability) which have been experienced or witnessed.

    The purpose of IN-SIGHT is to gather anonymized aggregate statistical information about incidents occurring on/off campus. The platform offers a way for Queen’s community members (students, staff, faculty etc) to anonymously share information about harassment, discrimination, or bias/hate concerns so that the information can be used to identify systemic trends.
