Queen’s sets up diversity and inclusion working group

Kingston, ON, Canada / CKWS TV

Queen’s university has set up a task force to look at the issues of discrimination against minorities on campus and in classrooms.

This stems from a controversial costume party on campus late last year, in which students dressed as citizens of different countries of the world.

Many found the costumes offensive after photos of the gathering were shared on social media.

The group is made up of 6 people and includes faculty members and students.

They must produce their recommendations by the end of March.

Daniel Woolf: “We have multiple cultures, people from multiple backgrounds and different sexual orientations and so on on campus. What might have been acceptable as a tradition or just ‘good fun’ twenty or thirty years ago isn’t necessarily going to be well received now.”
