Building community at the castle

Multi-faith space; training for staff, students, and faculty; and more people resources dedicated to equity, diversity, and inclusivity are on their way to the Bader International Study Centre (BISC) this fall.

These new additions to the castle community came about as a result of efforts on the part of staff, students, and faculty working to build a more inclusive campus.

In 2016, a one-time BISC University Inclusion Committee was struck to study these issues and come up with some recommendations. Since that time, the BISC’s Vice-Provost and Executive Director, Hugh Horton, has followed up by establishing a standing Vice-Provost’s Advisory Committee on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity.  

“This committee will be working over the next three years to support senior management in their development of a strategic plan for ensuring the promotion of access, inclusion, and diversity on the BISC campus; and to provide a coordinated approach to these issues,” says Roxy Denniston-Stewart, BISC Student and Enrolment Services Manager, who chairs this committee. “So far, the reception has been positive and the results encouraging.”

One of the committee’s first tasks was to issue a campus-wide survey to help form localized recommendations that could help make the BISC campus more inclusive.

The survey identified that the majority of respondents felt that they were treated equally, and that the BISC offered an inclusive environment. The issues and barriers that were identified were similar to those identified in the Principal’s Implementation Committee on Racism, Diversity, and Inclusion (PICRDI) report, with two challenges in particular that posed more of a problem for the BISC - infrastructure, and ensuring the language of Queen's values were transparent to British faculty and staff. 

"Being based in a historic building can make accessibility at times an intractable problem, and when we first attempted to get the view of staff and faculty on the many issues we were debating we had to ensure we kept true to the meaning of the Queen's values while translating these values into British English,"  says Ben Martin, a Philosophy Professor who is a member of the Advisory Committee. "For example, instead of using the word 'equity' in the UK, we tend to use the terms 'equality of opportunity'. The important point, however, is that all members of the community recognize what these values represent: the commitment to ensure that all academically able students have an equal opportunity to attend the BISC, regardless of their background."

In response to the survey, the BISC is ensuring equity, diversity, and inclusivity issues are taken into consideration and reflected in campus policies; providing cross-cultural training and sexual violence awareness training to all staff, and similar training to BISC first-years; and increasing collaboration with the Queen’s Equity and Human Rights Office.

As some next steps, the BISC will aim to establish a dedicated multi-faith prayer and reflection space; introduce more staff and management training; and work to ensure there is an Equity and Human Rights Office representative for the BISC as well as student government representatives focused on equity, diversity, and inclusivity.

“The committee made great strides in identifying areas that would improve the inclusivity, equity, and diversity at the BISC,” says Chloe Smith (Artsci’21), one of the student members of the committee. “I found all the committee members to be open to suggestions and it was evident by their hard work that this topic was important to everyone.”

“My experience really showed me that it only takes a few committed individuals to be able to make a difference,” adds Sara-Maya Kaba (Con.Ed’22), another student member on the committee. “I want the BISC to feel like home to anyone who walks through its doors, and I believe equity, diversity, and inclusivity plays a big part in being able to make that happen.”

Rector focuses on ‘choosing her lanes’

Recotr Alex da Silva addresses graduates during convocation

As Alex da Silva (ConEd’19), the 36th rector of Queen’s University, stood upon the Grant Hall stage for the first ceremonies of Spring Convocation, she knew that she would be taking part in one of the big moments for thousands of Queen’s students as they received their undergraduate or graduate degrees.

However, she also quickly realized that each event was an extremely valuable experience, providing her with a better picture of the people who make up the Queen’s student body.

“I think for convocation something I didn’t expect to get out of it is it really exposes me to the diversity of Queen’s students, because you see the entire graduating class walk across the stage at some point or another. You pick up on the differences from ceremony to ceremony,” she says, explaining that some ceremonies feature primarily undergraduate students, while others, like the Masters of Business Administration, is made up of mid-career graduates. “That dynamic is so different. Seeing graduates looking out into the audience to their loved ones – there’s children and full families there – and that’s special. That distinction serves to remind me that there are students here at Queen’s who are mid-career and mid-family development; these are students that I am just as responsible for representing. It’s definitely going to influence the perspective I have on the students that I represent, having been able to see that through convocation.”

Ms. da Silva’s term as rector began on May 1 after being elected in January. In her role, the third highest officer of the university after the chancellor and principal, she represents all students at Queen’s – graduate and undergraduate.

During the first convocation ceremony on May 25, she was officially installed, donning her regalia before taking on her duties of addressing graduates and their guests, shaking hundreds of hands.

Throughout her time at Queen’s, Ms. da Silva has been involved in numerous activities across campus with various causes and clubs. More recently she worked with the Alma Mater Society as the ReUnion Street Festival Coordinator for Homecoming. It provided her the opportunity to work at the intersection of students, alumni, administration, and city stakeholders. As the rector, she will be able to take this experience even further.

“As the ReUnion Street Festival coordinator I got to see how the various counterparts work together, the different priorities they bring to the table, and how willing they are to work together, which is something I was really surprised by the most,” she says. “The fact that the members of the administration that I worked with as a student were so receptive and supportive of everything that I brought to them, which was really what got me thinking of getting involved, not just at the student level but in a capacity where I can interact with all those different parties.”

Growing up in Hamilton, Ms. da Silva was constantly encouraged by her family “to do things that are meaningful and fulfilling.” As the rector she will be able to do just that. However, during the transition phase, she received some sage advice from her predecessor Cam Yung as well as Vice-Principal (Advancement) Tom Harris, who will become Provost and Vice-Chancellor on July 1. Both told her that she should “choose lanes,” to select priorities in order to avoid being “spread too thin.” 

Ms. da Silva is prioritizing mental health and wellness, alcohol awareness, and equity, diversity and inclusion. Each is a key issue for the university, and she is hoping to contribute to the ongoing efforts during her two years as rector.

“Something I’ve already discussed with stakeholders at the university and with peers is trying to help students become more sustainable in supporting themselves, understanding what self-care looks like on a daily basis and not something that comes at the end of a difficult two- or three-week period,” she says. “I also want to continue the work that Cam Yung has done on alcohol and there are numerous stakeholders on campus and beyond that are very invested in that.”

In terms of equity, diversity, and inclusivity, Ms. da Silva is supporting a project to create a space on campus for marginalized students where they can hold events, group meetings, while at the same time have the “recognition that those students absolutely deserve.”

Having chosen her lanes, Ms. da Silva also knows that there is so much more work to be done. It’s something she has learned both through her years at Queen’s and up on the Grant Hall stage.

“Campus is ever-changing and that is something that I am absolutely attuned to,” she says. “I am excited to see how things transform in the next two years.”

Two of Kingston’s oldest and most colourful neighbourhoods are being brought into a new focus, thanks to a historical photography project being curated by Queen’s University professor Laura Murray and local photographer Chris Miner.

The unique combination of art and history takes a look at the Swamp Ward and the Inner Harbour areas of Kingston.

While conducting oral history interviews, Dr. Murray was often shown family photographs. For this exhibit, project participants allowed her to scan their treasures, and now they are being displayed at the locations they were taken so that people today can reflect on what has changed and what has not.

“This is a special model of research as it draws on the wisdom of the community,” says Dr. Murray. “It’s a way to experience the whole neighbourhood in three dimensions.”

These two areas are the oldest in Kingston and were home to Indigenous peoples. Dr. Murray will also be focusing on the Kingston area as she pursues her work on Indigenous treaty history. 

After the Europeans arrived, the Inner Harbour became industrial, complete with railroads, factories, and docks. The adjacent Swamp Ward was where the workers and their families lived, went to school, went to church, shopped and played.

The project, funded by the City of Kingston Heritage Fund, seeks to bring Kingston history to life. Twenty enlarged black and white photographs taken by, preserved by, and featuring residents of the area between 1890 and 1960 are being mounted outdoors around the neighbourhood at the locations they were taken. The main areas of focus are between Stephen and Queen streets and Barrie and Bagot streets.

The Elm Café at Montreal and Charles streets (long a local landmark as Laverne's Laundry and various groceries before that), will display more portraits together with captions providing information about the people they portray, collected from oral history interviews and other archival sources.

“Through these photographs our participants are providing information that isn’t available in any other way,” says Dr. Murray. “They are opening their doors to us and letting us peek into the history of their families. The photos share stories of stressful times for these working class communities and also show the fun side of their lives.”

A map of the locations of the photographs is available on the Facing the Street website. The Elm Café is open 7 am to 5 pm Tuesday to Friday and 8 am to 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday. The exhibit runs until June 30. Mr. Miner and Dr. Murray are giving a curator talk at Kingston City Hall (Memorial Hall) on June 26 at 3 pm.

First Nations students in grades 10 and 11 have deepened their knowledge of science and health care with the help of some Queen’s graduate students.

The high-school students are participants in a pilot program aimed at giving them a leg up as they prepare for post-secondary studies. They met with their mentors from February through to the end of May.

“The vision of this program is to provide these students with a science-based education opportunity that leaves them feeling inspired, confident, and supported,” says Lisa Doxtator, Aboriginal Community Outreach Liaison at Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre and one of the program’s co-ordinators.

“Our hope is that the students will consider furthering their education in the sciences and will be better established for postsecondary success through this program,” adds Bruce Elliott, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine who is also one of the program’s co-ordinators. “The Four Directions Centre provides an ideal supportive home for our program.”

Working alongside Dr. Elliott and Ms. Doxtator are assistant co-ordinators, PhD student Chelsea Jackson and MSc graduate Sarah Nersesian; and graduate student mentors Nicole Morse, Natasha Vitkin, and Matteo Zago-Schmitt of the Queen's Collaborative Cancer Grad Program and the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine.  

The mentors guide the students down one of two streams – a general stream, where the students learn about the scientific method through basic experiences; and a specific interest stream, where they complete a goal-driven project to gain experience in their area of interest.

“I wanted to get involved with the Research Mentorship program to combine my passion for science with my desire to give back to the Kingston community,” says Ms. Vitkin. “In our meetings, my mentee and I perform scientific experiments, go over key concepts, and discuss possible career paths and educational opportunities. I have really enjoyed creating a one-on-one discovery-based environment where my mentee and I learn from each other and explore key scientific concepts.”

Rounding out the team are Scott Nicol and Kelly Maracle, Indigenous Student Support and Engagement teachers with the Katarokwi Learning Centre of the Limestone District School Board (LDSB).

“For the school board, this program has created a post-secondary pathway for our students that attend the River Program at the Katarokwi Learning Centre,” says Ms. Maracle.

The pilot program currently includes three students from the education centre – this fall, the school board and Queen’s hope to expand the program to include more Indigenous students.

"The science mentorship was an enjoyable, interactive, and educational program,” says Mary-Jane Vincent, one of the students. “I enjoyed the variety of hands-on experiments like extracting DNA out of a strawberry and identifying differences between the mentor's and mentee's fingerprints."

As a final highlight, students and their mentors were invited to visit the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences’ Anatomy Learning Centre, where they were hosted by the Anatomy Pattern II program. During their visit, they viewed human body parts and tissues on microscope slides.

This mentorship program was funded by a $5,000 Canadian Institutes of Health Research Synpase grant. The school board has also covered some of the students’ costs.
