    Queen’s University Task Force on Street Parties holds first meeting

    The Queen’s University Task Force on Street Parties held its first meeting on June 6.

    Struck by Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane, the task force builds on Queen’s existing partnerships with the City of Kingston and community partners and provides a forum to develop new and innovative approaches to address unsanctioned street parties.

    In its first meeting, the task force agreed upon its mandate and key principles. The task force will consult with Queen's students, community members, and other interested and affected members of the Queen's and Kingston communities, and report back to the public in the fall of 2022 with recommendations and an implementation strategy.

    Chaired by Principal Deane, the task force is made up of 24 representatives, 13 of whom are community partner representatives from the municipality, healthcare, emergency response, other area post-secondary institutions, community groups and law enforcement, and 11 university student and staff representatives.

    More information detailing the work and membership of the committee is available on the Principal’s website. The information will continue to be updated as work progresses.
