Summary: Message from the President March 2009
At the University of Regina, we have a unique opportunity to create, within our own walls,
an environment that represents the world we want to live in. How can we do this? Through
our own individual behaviour and how we choose to work, study and interact with each
other.
The University is a place where we come together to generate and encourage debate and
dialogue. Ideas, critical thought, discovery and knowledge define our purpose. Within this
climate and environment, we need to treat each other with dignity and respect. In a
respectful environment the one we want for our University all that we do, from emails to
class handouts to our personal interactions, should be from a position of respect. Materials
and attitudes not respectful of people's race, gender, sexual identity, and physical or mental
disability, for example, fall outside the realm of acceptable dialogue and debate on our
campus.
We want to encourage conversations around things like societal values, religious views and
the entire spectrum of what it means to be human but we need to have these discussions
in a manner that respects difference and depersonalizes our language, focusing always on
the issue, not the individual.
The University of Regina has a Respectful Work and Learning Environment Policy
(http://www.uregina.ca/presoff/vpadmin/policymanual/hr/RWLE%20%20Policy%2006-
12.pdf) which clearly states our commitment to "creating and maintaining an environment
