Statement from Dean Philpott regarding second incident of vandalism at Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre

This afternoon, I was informed of the incident of vandalism at the Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre. This is the second incident of its kind in less than a month.

However, it is important that we call out these incidents for what they are – racist acts of violence - that will not be tolerated by anyone within our Faculty or at Queen’s.

Shortly after my arrival at Queen’s ten years ago, I brought about a dozen IT experts into my office from across campus and asked them what social media approaches I should use to stay connected with our students, staff, faculty and alumni. I was expecting the focus to be on Facebook or Twitter, but what was suggested was that I write a blog. Unknowingly, and somewhat naïve, I agreed to the suggestion, not really understanding the magnitude of the undertaking.
