Queen's Principal's Report on Community Conversation

On October 9, 2020, Queen’s Principal Patrick Deane issued his Report on the Conversation. It reflects discussions he has had with the university and stakeholder community over the last year, and it is intended to be the foundation upon which a new strategic framework for Queen’s will be built including addressing requirements to truly become more diverse.

Task Force & Working Groups

Smith School of Business and Queen’s University are taking several steps to advance equity, diversity, inclusion and indigenization including the creation of Smith’s Task Force and Working Groups.

The Task Force will identify systemic barriers to EDII, develop directives for action, and establish an implementation plan for reducing those barriers and advancing EDII at Smith.
