Dear Members of the Windsor Law Community,
On the evening of 25 November 2020, it was brought to my attention that members of the Delta Chi fraternity in Windsor have made deplorable anti-Black racist, racist, sexist, homophobic, antisemitic, ableist and other discriminatory posts. Windsor Law unequivocally condemns these activities and urges that the Fraternity be barred from any campus activities or associations. It appears no law students are involved. Nonetheless, this has been an incredibly difficult number of months for our BIPOC students. While I believe we have taken some positive measures, including around hiring, student services and commissioning a review, we need to do much more as a law school. We will be holding a faculty meeting to discuss these issues and I will be updating the law school community shortly with what concrete measures have been taken and will be taken.
Dean and Professor
University of Windsor Faculty of Law
Since the abhorrent words and actions of members of the Delta Chi fraternity were exposed last month, anonymous, threatening and hate-filled messages have been received by Windsor Law students, faculty and staff members, as well as other members of our campus community. These messages have especially targeted BIPOC members of our community and members of our community from a number of equity-seeking groups. Windsor Law condemns these anti-Black racist, racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic and other discriminatory posts and emails. We are working with police to ensure all incidents are robustly investigated, perpetrators identified and criminal charges laid wherever possible. If members of the campus community are in any way involved, we will take immediate action. The Faculty condemns efforts to silence or intimidate our colleagues and students.
