As a university that values its inclusive and diverse community, Wilfrid Laurier University supports the statement by Universities Canada in response to the U.S. government’s recent executive order on immigration.
“Canada’s universities continue to welcome students, faculty and staff from around the world, including those seeking refuge from violence and hardship. They strengthen Canada’s university communities, bringing new knowledge, talent and skills to higher education, research and innovation – to the benefit of all Canadians.”
The university also acknowledges the impacts of the shooting at the Quebec City mosque on Jan. 29. Our hearts go out to all those affected by this terrible incident.
Members of the Laurier community looking for travel information or support can contact Peter Donahue at Laurier International firstname.lastname@example.org or Laura Mae Lindo in Laurier’s Diversity and Equity Office email@example.com.
