Reception to celebrate opening of multi-faith space

Students, staff and faculty are invited to celebrate the official opening of the new campus Multi-Faith Space, from 2 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, October 18.

The space is intended for prayer, meditation or contemplation, and is located in room B-08 on the lower level of the CAW Student Centre.

Kaye Johnson, director of the University’s Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility, called the multi-faith space a “typical model” on Canadian campuses.

“We are coming together to create something that is positive and brings people together in a way that fosters an atmosphere of mutual respect,” she said. “In a spirit of pluralism, it goes beyond diversity to the energetic engagement with diversity – learning from each other to nurture a deeper understanding and mutual respect.”
