Letter to the Editor

“As student representatives to the Board of Governors of the University of Ottawa, we want to express our disappointment with the response of the University and many members of our community to the recent racist events occurring on campus,” write Jamie Ghossein & Saada Hussen the undergraduate student representatives on the University of Ottawa’s Board of Governors.

Jacques Frémont

The University of Ottawa’s president and vice-chancellor Jacques Frémont responded early this morning to the recent incident of a professor uttering the ‘N-word’ in an online lecture. The professor had been suspended since early October, and a group of professors had written a letter denouncing her treatment at the hands of the U of O administration.

Two University of Ottawa students, Eve Staszczyszyn and Livia Han have worked with students from the University of Waterloo BETS Program and the Queen’s Center for Advanced Computing to develop Wellness World; a portal aimed to combat the mental health crisis centered around the U of O community.
