Indigeneity, Inclusion, and Equity Series

The Faculty of Education is committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive community. To support our mission of developing progressive, ethical, competent, and thoughtful leaders in education, and in response to the PICRDI and TRCTF Final Report, we established the Indigeneity, Inclusion and Equity Series (IIE). This ongoing series aims to provide resources, training, and spaces to share ideas and concerns around these issues for students, faculty, and staff.

To recognize our community’s commitment and participation, after five IIE workshops or lectures students, staff, and faculty are eligible to receive a Certificate of Participation. Please email rebecca.carnevale@queensu.ca with any questions.

Ghosted Legacies

In 1918, Queen’s University officially barred black students from enrolling in the Faculty of Medicine. The policy was in effect until 1965 and formally rescinded in 2018. For 100 years, the remarkable legacies of more than 50 black medical alumni who attended in the early part of the 20th Century were forgotten. Queen’s alumnus Edward Thomas presents his research examining the far-reaching consequences to our understanding of Black History at Queen’s.

Time: 1:30-3:30 p.m.
