UM united in our commitment to equity, respect, and human dignity

June 30, 2023 — 
At the beginning of this month, many of us marched in celebration of 2SLGBTQQIA+. Now, in the final week of Pride Month, our peers at the University of Waterloo have experienced a heinous act of violence on their campus. The University of Manitoba extends our deepest sympathies and our solidarity against hate to our colleagues at the University of Waterloo. Our campuses should be places where we peacefully pursue knowledge and seek to benefit others.

Pride POV: Celebrate the inherent value of all people

May 23, 2023 — 
June is Pride Month, a time when we celebrate and honour the diversity of the 2SLGBTQ* community. As we reflect on the progress made towards queer liberation, it is important to recognize that we must also address the ways in which other privileges shape our perceptions of individuals and communities.
