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.
