McMaster’s response to the US travel ban and Quebec shootings

McMaster University has posted statements regarding the US travel ban and the shootings that took place at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec. Campus flags are flying at half mast in memory of the victims of the shooting.

In the statement, “McMaster joins with universities across Canada and around the world in condemning the targeting of individuals based on nationality or religion” and affirms its committment to “being an inclusive and respectful community where students, faculty, and staff from around the world are welcomed…The quality of our education, the power of our research and the collegiality of our campus are enriched by our diversity.”

The university further notes that “campus resources are available and anyone who may be impacted by the ban is encouraged to seek advice and assistance as soon as possible.”  See the university’s post for contact information for travel advice, counselling, and other supports.

The BHSc (Hons) Program is committed to doing our part to ensure that our campus is welcoming and inclusive.
