YukonU statement on racism
Yukon University recognizes that prejudice, discrimination and violence are the reality for Black, Indigenous and racially minoritized people in Canada. We stand unified in the recognition that changes to systemic practices that discriminate, must begin to be made. We commit to working with faculty and staff to articulate a path forward for Yukon University. We recognize that there is no defined road map to proceed; but together we must determine actions that accelerate the required change. We will determine a path that will combat systemic racism and work to unveil and undo unconscious bias.
This work will begin once the new President, Mike DeGagné arrives in early July. Please join us on this journey of growth and change.
Board of Governors Chair, David Morrison
