Student groups promoting equity and inclusion to move into Yellow House

University Council on Anti-Racism and Equity (UCARE) subcommittee selects four student groups for Yellow House occupancy.

In January 2019, Queen’s University announced that 140 Stuart Street – a property on campus known as “Yellow House” – would become dedicated space for Queen’s student groups working to advance social justice and inclusion. Since then, a sub-committee of the University Council on Anti-Racism and Equity (UCARE) collected and reviewed Expressions of Interest, and has selected the following four student groups for occupancy:

  • African and Caribbean Students’ Association
  • Levana Gender Advocacy Centre
  • Queen’s Black Academic Society
  • Queen’s University Muslim Student Association

“Each of these groups contributes to the campus community by striving to advance social justice, anti-racism, equity, diversity, and inclusion,” says Teri Shearer, Deputy Provost (Academic Operations and Inclusion). “The university is committed to supporting their efforts by providing them a welcoming space from which they can continue their work.”

If additional space remains after each of the selected clubs move into Yellow House, there will be a subsequent call for Expressions of Interest. The university is also planning to create bookable areas in Yellow House for use by groups without dedicated space.
