Statement in Support of the University of Waterloo
Acadia University stands in solidarity with our colleagues at the University of Waterloo and condemns gender-based violence and all other forms of hatred and bigotry. Our thoughts are with the students, faculty, and staff at Waterloo in the wake of the recent attack that saw one faculty member and two students injured.
Instances of bullying, homophobia, racism and other forms of abuse and hate, whether in person or via social media, while offensive to us personally, are an affront to Acadia’s value of inclusion.
If you are impacted by the devastating attack at Waterloo please consider connecting with staff in our Equity Office or Counselling Centre. Acadia also has a list of online mental health tools that may be helpful and employees can access support through Acadia’s Employee and Family Assistance Program.
