Dear students, faculty and staff:
Recent events have caused some people to question Laurier’s support for our LGBTQ2 campus community and transgender people in particular.
We are proud of Laurier’s record of celebrating all aspects of diversity. The presence, visibility and voices of our lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer and two-spirited students, faculty and staff enrich our campuses in immeasurable ways.
We will continue to make our campuses welcoming and engaging places for all people and all identities.
In the past weeks, we have created and communicated additional supports for students, faculty and staff, and added measures to improve campus safety.
There is no place at Laurier for bigotry, discrimination, intolerance or marginalization. Laurier’s support for our LGBTQ2 campus community is resolute and unshakable.
We are grateful to the many people who have reached out to us about this important matter. On behalf of the Executive Leadership Team of Wilfrid Laurier University, thank you for your commitment to making Laurier a better place.
President and Vice-Chancellor
