The University of King’s College is prioritizing efforts to increase equity, accessibility and inclusion for all constituencies. This work, guided by President William Lahey’s mandate [PDF] and other foundational documents, is fundamental to the university’s ability to deliver the exceptional education King’s is known for, in an environment where all may flourish. Efforts to enhance inclusiveness and belonging are underway and will continue to expand, impacting how King’s recruits students, faculty, staff and administration, as well as positions of influence held by appointment, including the Board of Governors and the Alumni Association Executive. At the same time, faculty and students are working to “decolonize” course offerings and curricula, while student groups and societies are redefining themselves to create a more welcoming campus life. This section is the digital presence of ongoing and future initiatives and a resource for all. These pages will be updated regularly.
Though started, much of this work remains to be done. Contributions from everyone in the King’s community are welcome and encouraged.
