Queen's Committee Against Racial and Ethnic Discrimination - CARED


C.A.R.E.D seeks to be a proactive force on campus. "We are an activist and educational committee that not only examines the ways in which racism and discrimination intersect with issues of gender, class and sexuality but also acts to explore possible strategies for combating it. C.A.R.E.D hopes to be the type of committee that advocates for students that have encountered incidents of racism and discrimination and aims to fight oppression through education and lobbying. C.A.R.E.D seeks to provide students with a safe, open, and non-judgmental space for sharing their experiences of oppression and discrimination. C.A.R.E.D strives to serve historically marginalized racial and ethnic groups by engaging with and addressing their lived experiences."

Accessibility services - Start-UP Transition Support Service

Student Wellness Services

Start-UP is a great opportunity for first year students who are registered with QSAS to receive individualized support on any aspect of their transition to university. The university learning environment can be very different from a high school environment and figuring out how you work best in this environment can at times be a process. When you meet with Gail (our Start-UP co-ordinator), she will help you figure out how to use your strengths to work through the aspects of the transition you are finding the most challenging in this new environment. You may have found that strategies related to studying, time management, advocacy, focus and concentration and organization that worked well in high school don't seem to work as well in university.
