Our values flow from individual and collective commitments to recognize and unlearn (often unconscious) patriarchal, heterosexist, fatphobic, ableist, racist and colonial ways of thinking and acting, and to work towards the goals laid out in the Queen’s University guiding documents that promote equity, diversity and inclusion, including the Principal’s Implementation Committee on Racism, Diversity, and Inclusion (2017), Yakwanastahentéha Aankenjigemi (Extending the Rafters): Truth and Reconciliation Commission Task Force Final Report (2017), and the Policy on Sexual Violence Involving Queen’s University Students (2018).
We recognize that we must individually and collectively take responsibility to identify and respond to individual, institutional, and structural discrimination and inequity in SKHS. We will use the Queen’s University DEAP (Diversity and Equity Assessment and Planning) tool to collectively facilitate action and accountability.
We understand this Mission Statement to be a living document that requires each of us to enact it in our everyday lives in the School of Kinesiology & Health Studies.
