Queen’s receives grant from Bell Let’s Talk to support student mental health

Queen’s is among 123 post-secondary institutions across Canada to receive an initial grant of $25,000 from the Bell Let’s Talk Post-Secondary Fund

This grant is being used to support the university's initial steps in implementing the new National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students, a set of voluntary guidelines that aims to help increase awareness, reduce stigma, improve life and resiliency skills, and create a healthier and safer educational environment. 

“As students continue to be affected by the pandemic  in so many aspects of their lives, the Standard will help us ensure we have the programs, services and resources in place to support their mental health and well-being,” says Ann Tierney, Vice-Provost and Dean, Student Affairs. “We are grateful to Bell Let’s Talk for this new fund that will help advance our ongoing efforts to support our students.”

The funding is being used towards the hiring of a full-time 12-month student intern position through the Queen’s Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP), starting in May. The intern will work with campus partners to help complete a Standard self-assessment tool and then develop and initiate the implementation of the Standard, under the university’s Campus Wellbeing Framework.

This work also aligns with the Okanagan Charter, adopted by Queen’s in 2019, that calls on post-secondary institutions to embed health and well-being in all aspects of campus culture, and to lead human and environmental wellbeing promotion action, locally and globally.

Inspiring sustainability for Earth Day

The Climate Commitment Challenge provides ways for the Queen’s community to reduce its carbon footprint.

As Earth Day approaches on Thursday, April 22, the Queen’s Climate Commitment Challenge encourages members of the university community to work together toward meaningful sustainability goals, even as university operations continue to be primarily remote due to COVID-19.

Running from April 18-25, the challenge celebrates Earth Day by asking participants to take steps to reduce their carbon footprint throughout the week. Queen’s students, faculty, staff, and alumni, are all invited to participate. The challenge is also open to those who do not have a Queen’s affiliation.

“We can all use Earth Day to reflect on the importance of a healthy environment and the choices we can make to protect it. The Climate Commitment Challenge gives Queen’s a week to try out new sustainable practices and see the difference we can make as a community,” says Kim Gascoigne, Marketing Coordinator, Queen’s Hospitality Services and an organizer of the challenge.

Participants are invited to select from several challenges and will receive reminder emails throughout the week.

Among other things, the challenges ask participants to cut back their overall water usage by running the dishwasher or taking shorter showers, save energy by turning off lights and lowering thermostats, and reduce their use of fossil fuels by opting for sustainable forms of transportation.

Participants are also encouraged to share a photo of themselves completing their challenges – such as biking, hiking, or preparing a meatless meal – on social media.

“Earth Day is meant to inspire us to take action, and by asking participants to share their accomplishments online we’re hoping to spread the inspiration for sustainable living as widely as we can,” says Gascoigne.

Learn more about the Queen’s Climate Commitment Challenge and how to recognize Earth Day on the new Sustainable Queen’s website, which also has resources and information about how to get involved in sustainability efforts all year.

Talking Circles

Provost Rahswahérha Mark Green hosts regular gatherings that bring together Indigenous students, faculty, and staff for networking and support.

Talking Circles have been in existence within Indigenous communities for millennia. It is the method by which members gather in a circle to teach, learn, solve problems, and share. In that same spirit, Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) Rahswahérha Mark Green has embarked upon a mission to reach out to Queen’s Indigenous community with regularly scheduled Talking Circles.

Held on the fourth Thursday of every month beginning at 5:30 pm, this forum allows Indigenous students, faculty, and staff to gather as a community to support each other. The first meeting took place in January.

“When we bring people together in a safe space and let them know they are supported and truly valued, they will thrive,” Provost Green says. “We have the ability to strengthen the fabric and culture at our university and one of the most important ways in which to do that is through acknowledgment. We are acknowledging that everyone has a place at Queen’s, and we are providing the Indigenous community with an opportunity to share their experiences.”

The Talking Circles initiative is meant to support the Indigenous community at Queen’s and aligns with the recommendations in Queen’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission Task Force (TRCTF) report. The TRCTF delivered 25 recommendations to guide the university in not only becoming more welcoming to Indigenous culture, but to also incorporate Indigenous languages and knowledge into the Queen’s ethos.

Talking Circles is but one of the programs borne from the TRCTF’s Extending the Rafters report. Significant advancements in expanding Indigenous initiatives at Queen’s have been made in recent years, including the establishment of the Office of Indigenous Initiatives, new programs, training, recruitment, and support services. This work continues to be a priority for the university.

As outlined in the recent TRCTF’s implementation report, there have been advances made at Queen’s in several areas: increases in applications from self-identified Indigenous students (up by two per cent), offers to Indigenous students (up 19 per cent), acceptances from Indigenous students (up 24.4 per cent), increases in the number of Indigenous faculty and staff, and securing more than $2 million in philanthropic funding of Indigenous initiatives in the Stauffer Library, Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Faculty of Law, and Faculty of Arts and Science.

Science Rendezvous Kingston – At home

Science Rendezvous Kingston has gone virtual this year, inspiring STEM curiosity and discovery from the nature around us to the far-reaches of outer space.

[Promotion graphic - Science Rendezvous Kingston May 1 - 16, 2021 - Virtual Expo @STEMYGK]

Science Rendezvous Kingston is celebrating a milestone anniversary this year and marking it with the largest event to date.

For nine years, Science Rendezvous Kingston has been an exceedingly popular community event, drawing about 17,000 people from across the region to engage with local STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) experts and Queen’s researchers. While the 2020 event was cancelled due to COVID-19, organizers set their sights on developing the first virtual Science Rendezvous Kingston to mark its return. The enthusiastic response from the STEM community and Queen’s researchers has turned the 10th anniversary event into the largest program offering yet, with live virtual activities from May 1-16, 2021.

“We are very proud of the Science Rendezvous Kingston virtual venue and are excited to know that our activities will have a wider reach than ever because there are no geographical limitations to participation,” says co-coordinator Lynda Colgan (Education). “We expect to have visitors from around the city, province, country, and world joining us — learning and loving it!”

Inspired by the theme of “STEAM Green,” integrating science, technology, engineering, arts, and math with stewardship for the flora, fauna and water systems of our planet, this family-friendly event will combine online experiences with outdoor and “kitchen-table” activities for at-home learning. All programs will be housed on the Science Rendezvous Kingston website where visitors will find both a huge selection of content and special events rolled out during the two-week period. Some of the programs available will be a virtual tour through the Museum of Nature’s Canadian Wildlife Photography of the Year exhibit, demonstrations from Queen’s researchers, STEM@Home learning activities, and the Exploratorium, an online STEM gaming environment designed to take users out of this world. Some additional activities added throughout the event will be videos featuring women STEM innovators and influencers, and STEM challenges, such as the Canada-wide Science Chase scavenger hunt and the Million Tree Project.

Organizers have also planned virtual live Q&A sessions meant to further Science Rendezvous Kingston’s mission to inspire curiosity in STEM among students and provide opportunities for them to engage with researchers as role models. Queen’s researchers participating in the live sessions include John Smol, Canada Research Chair in Environmental Change, and Connor Stone, PhD candidate in astrophysics and co-coordinator of the Queen’s Observatory. Keynotes will also be delivered by James Raffan, famous Canadian explorer, Jasveen Brar, conservationist and STEM literacy advocate, and Lindsey Carmichael, award-winning author and Faculty of Education’s Science Literacy Week Author-in-Residence.

Science Rendezvous Kingston is part of NSERC’s Science Odyssey’s national program, supporting free science outreach events across the country. Kingston’s last event in 2019 was honoured with the national STEAM Big! Award and co-coordinator Dr. Colgan was awarded the 2020 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada’s Science Promotion Award, in part, for Science Rendezvous Kingston’s success in promoting STEM among the community.

Update Queen’s University Library on your new publications

If you have published a monograph (books in print, fiction, or non-fiction) in the past calendar year, Queen’s University Library wants to hear from you.

Any Queen’s faculty member who has recently published a monograph, is asked to view the list on the Queen’s Authors page, and if your monograph is not listed, report your publication via the library website.

The library has been asked to compile a list of Queen's faculty monographs to help inform the annual Queen’s University Faculty Author Reception, being held virtually on April 29.  We would like to ensure that the list is as complete as possible, as it will assist in confirming our library holdings.

Student Experiences Survey receives more than 6,000 responses

Queen’s consultation on equity, diversity, inclusion, Indigenization, and sexual violence on campus collects meaningful insights to help inform path toward greater equity and wellbeing.

In early March, Queen’s launched a comprehensive pilot initiative called the Student Experiences Survey to explore perceptions and experiences of systemic racism, exclusionary and discriminatory behaviours, and sexual violence on campus.

During the period of March 4-26, all Queen’s students were invited to complete an online, voluntary, anonymous survey, and more than 6,000 students participated. Insights from these students will help inform and measure the progress and effects of anti-racism and anti-violence initiatives as Queen’s works to fulfill its Declaration of Commitment to Address Systemic Racism.

“Queen’s is, and must always be, striving to create an environment in which everyone feels welcomed, included, and safe to learn and live as authentically as possible,” says Stephanie Simpson, Associate Vice-Principal (Human Rights, Equity, and Inclusion). “Student voices are integral in making this a reality, and the Student Experiences Survey will help illuminate barriers that still must be overcome and establish benchmarks against which we can stand accountable as we move to advance this important work.”

An early look at survey data shows broad and varied participation among undergraduate and graduate-level students across all faculties and years of study, including representation from both domestic and international students. The survey invited respondents to disclose racial, gender, sexual and other identities to better understand and measure the campus climate for underrepresented and marginalized students.

“We are so grateful to students for their openness to participate, as we know some of their experiences may have been difficult to share,” says Ann Tierney, Vice-Provost and Dean, Student Affairs. “This information will help us better understand the campus climate as it is now; it will also assist us in building and refining initiatives, programs, and support services to help move our institution toward greater equity and wellbeing for all who learn here.”

Student participation in this survey is contributing to positive impacts beyond our campus community. The first 2,000 students to complete the survey were offered a $5 token of appreciation which they could either accept as an on-campus dining credit or contribute to one of three local charities. Students chose to donate more than $6,100 to Mohawk Language and Cultural Centre Tsi Tyónnheht Onkwawén:na, Loving Spoonful, and the Sexual Assault Centre Kingston.  

The survey data will be analyzed over the coming weeks and an institutional snapshot report will be shared with the campus community in June 2021 with further analyses coming later in the summer and fall.  

Students will be engaged in future decision-making and implementation of new strategies stemming from survey insights. Students can indicate their interest in being involved in this ongoing work by emailing studentexperiencessurvey@queensu.ca

Completing Richardson Stadium through alumni giving

Over 300 alumni have contributed more than $11 million to construct a new pavilion to enhance the space.

  • Design rendering of new pavilion at Richardson Stadium
    The new pavilion will include facilities that will enhance the training and competition environment for varsity sports, expand opportunities for varsity and recreation programs such as intramurals, make usage more gender inclusive, and support a broad range of activities for students and community members.

Thanks to generous donations from Queen’s alumni, the university is set to build a new pavilion for Richardson Stadium that will provide enhanced amenities for student-athletes, students, coaches, spectators, and community members.

This new addition will be the finishing touch on the 2016 redevelopment of Richardson Stadium and complete the vision for a rejuvenated stadium. The groundbreaking later this year coincides with the 100th anniversary of the opening of a George Taylor Richardson Memorial Stadium on campus.

Queen’s announced and celebrated the gifts behind the project during an online event on April 15. More than 300 donors contributed over $11 million to make the pavilion possible, with the lead gift coming from Stu (Sc’74) and Kim Lang (Artsci’76). Stu Lang played for the Gaels as an undergraduate at Queen’s, and went on to a professional career in the Canadian Football League. He also served as coach of the University of Guelph Gryphons, where he remains an adviser for the team.

“This is a special day that has been several years in the making. Both Kim and I are so proud to be able to attend this announcement and to help see this amazing vision through to its conclusion,” he says. “However, we are only two of more than 300 donors and alumni who have come together, like a great sports team with a common goal. I think I can safely speak on behalf of all past and present football Gaels when I say that this pavilion will be a point of pride for Queen’s University, and something that brings all of us together as a community.”

Major donors to the project also include Joe and Lucie Pal, Sandra Plumley, Bob and Mary McFarlane, Don and Sheila Bayne, Paul and Vicki Hand, Skip and Debbie Eaman, members of the Red Banner Society and Football Management Committee, the Football Doctors, and the members of the 1978, 1983 and 1992 Vanier Cup teams.

“The new pavilion will greatly enhance Queen’s Athletics and its programs and would not be possible without the generous contributions of many. These gifts exemplify the Queen’s spirit and we thank all the donors for their generosity to Queen’s,” says Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane. 

During the online event, participants got a chance to see renderings of the new pavilion and hear from student-athletes about the impact the new construction will have. Vice-Principal (Advancement) Karen Bertrand was also on hand to thank the donors.

“Sports have a way of bringing all of us together and today’s announcement is welcome news for Queen’s and our entire community,” says Bertrand. “We are grateful for the vision, leadership and generosity of Stu and Kim Lang, the RBS Committee, and all the alumni, teams, and community members that have contributed to the pavilion. It will be a place where, at long last, we will be able to gather together again and cheer on our student-athletes. Until that day, we know the pavilion will be filled with the spirit of Queen’s.”

Benefits of the pavilion

When the pavilion is completed, it will provide coaches and student-athletes with modern training and competition spaces as well as athletic therapy, hydrotherapy facilities, meeting rooms, and other sport-related amenities. It will also create a new team room for football that has direct field access.

“The pavilion at Richardson Stadium will add tremendous excitement to both our community of athletes, as well as all of our supporters. Queen’s is privileged to already have such an incredible stadium, as well as world-class training facilities, and the pavilion will just take that to another level,” says Rasheed Tucker, a third-year Commerce student who plays football.

The two-story pavilion will be built to fit into the existing landscape of West Campus. It will include facilities that will enhance the training and competition environment for varsity sports, expand opportunities for varsity and recreation programs such as intramurals, make usage more gender inclusive, and support a broad range of activities for students and community members.

“The Queen’s community is very proud of our outstanding student-athletes. This new pavilion will provide them, as well as all of our students and local community members with enhanced services and opportunities. It will also position Queen’s as a national leader in university athletics facilities,” says Ann Tierney, Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs.  

For spectators, the pavilion will connect the entire stadium at the concourse level and provide the permanent home of the Gaels Club, which will offer concessions as well as an elevated viewing area. It will also create a new prominent entrance that will serve as the gateway to the stadium.

Kingston community members will benefit as well, as the pavilion will provide increased access to Richardson Stadium for participants in programs such as the Junior Gaels. The Junior Gaels encourages youth in the Kingston area to excel in both academics and athletics by connecting them with Queen’s student-athletes who serve as mentors for youth in a variety of sports, including soccer and football.

The development of the pavilion will begin in 2021, with construction expected to start in January 2022 and be completed by April 2023.
