Message and Invitation from Principal Ipperciel
Dear Glendon students,
What we can do
Contact York’s Community Safety Department if you become aware of hate-speech graffiti or any other types of occurrences that condone or promote hate on campus at 416-650-8000 extension 58000 or contact 911. Students who need support, can access these services:
- The Accessibility, Well-Being, and Counselling Centre (Glendon)
- The Office of Student Affairs (Glendon)
- Centre for Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion (Keele)
- The Department of Community Safety (Keele)
- Glendon College Student Union (GCSU), student organizations, residence dons, peer mentors, and peers
Stand up against hate speech!
#GLNotreMaison began as a collaborative effort between Student Affairs and the GCSU and is a way to take action, speak up and denounce hate crime on campus by spreading messages of unity, care and support. Hate crime seeks to divide us and to produce apathy and fear. #GLNotreMaison is intended to draw power away from hate, toward solidarity and inclusion. There are two ways to participate:
- Tell us what makes Glendon home and/or what diversity, equity and inclusion mean to you, by using #GLNotreMaison and #Glendon on social media.
- Drop by the Lion’s Den to write your response on a poster. Take action and join the conversation today.
I also want to take this opportunity to invite you to a town hall meeting which will take place this Friday, March 24th, at 2:30 pm, in room A100. For those unable to attend in person, we invite you to join the conversation via Livestream on the Lion’s Den Facebook page. Simultaneous interpretation will be available.
We have invited our colleagues from York University Community Safety to tell us more about the nature of the incidents, as well as the measures, protocols and support services in place.
I look forward to seeing you on Friday to address these issues together.
Donald Ipperciel, Principal
