URFA’s commitment to being an anti-racist association
Racism in all its form, including racist comments, causes harm and impacts to both directed recipients of racist acts and comments and to racialized members of the broader community. Racism harms students, staff, faculty and all those who are connected with Campion College, First Nations University of Canada, Luther College and University of Regina communities.
The University of Regina Faculty Association (URFA) unequivocally condemns racism. Racism has no place in our association and contravenes our vision, mission and values as outlined in our strategic plan and our purpose and objectives as outlined in our constitution. URFA is committed to our vision where “members are diverse, engaged and secure in their employment and physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health.”
URFA’s Executive Committee will be developing a plan to identify ways in which our association can support and act according to the principles of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. We will ensure our operations are anti-racist and respectful. We commit to sharing the plan and our actions with members as they are developed. URFA is dedicated to making sure that every member is respected.
URFA is unable to speak to any specific situations involving URFA members in order to adhere to labour legislation.
