“I am saddened to share the news of the death of a member of our student community,” reads an emailed statement from U of O president Jacques Frémont sent on Friday.

A town hall discussion on anti-Black racism on the U of O campus saw more than 30 Black students and staff share discriminatory incidents that they have experienced at the school. Speakers presented a number of different recommendations that the school implement, including hiring more Black professors and changing curriculum.

The University of Ottawa Students’ Union marked the official launch of its office space, website, and service centres on Tuesday morning with an event featuring speeches from the university president and the Rideau-Vanier city councillor, along with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
