Statement from President Kevin McCormick on Scholar Strike Canada

As the new academic year is set to begin we applaud the united voices of scholars, from institutions of higher learning across Canada, who will participate in Scholar Strike Canada on September 9 and 10.  This social justice movement calls for racial justice and an end to systemic violence against Black, Indigenous and People of Colour across Canada, the U.S. and around the world.

Huntington University is committed to creating a safe space for learning and working, and an inclusive environment, for all members of our community.  As President and Vice-Chancellor of Huntington University I would like to advise all faculty, staff and students that they are both welcomed and supported, should they wish to participate in Scholar Strike Canada.  We would simply ask that faculty advise students of any class changes in advance, if possible.  Any staff wishing to participate need simply notify us. 

These are important societal and justice issues that deserve our attention and focus, as we work collectively and in solidarity to force positive change.  Huntington University is proud to support the scholars, faculty, staff and students who engage and raise their voices in this unified call for justice and equality for all members of our campuses, communities, nations and world. 

Thank you, Merci, Miigwech

Dr. Kevin McCormick

President and Vice-Chancellor
