STATEMENT FROM THE SGPS EXECUTIVE

For Immediate Release:
November 23, 2016

KINGSTON, ON – Last night, the SGPS Executive was informed of a party where Queen’s students allegedly clothed themselves in culturally insensitive costumes. The SGPS promotes an inclusive environment for all students and seeks to encourage and educate on issues of equity.

This represents an opportunity to come together as a community and have an open dialogue. We look forward to working with our university partners and stakeholders to create a better, more inclusive Queen’s community.

We would direct members affected by this issue to the SGPS website to review our various support resources.
