UCalgary study reveals concerns about “pockets of perceived disrespect” on campus

February 7, 2017

Some participants in a University of Calgary study have expressed concerns about “pockets of perceived disrespect” and a “lack of respect for diverse voices” in campus culture, reports the Calgary Herald. The newspaper notes that the survey was part of an ongoing consultation that the university is undertaking as it moves toward the next phase of its Eyes High institutional strategy. In addition to their concerns about disrespect for certain voices, some respondents reportedly expressed concern about lingering communication gaps within the university. “The rich feedback we received through the 2016 consultation process is of tremendous value as we begin to draft an energized Eyes High strategy,” said UCalgary President Elizabeth Cannon in a statement. “It is exciting to confirm that we are on the right track and to learn where people feel we can focus to improve even more.” Calgary Herald
