UWindsor Anti-Black Racism task force releases report, 40 recommendations

December 20, 2021
The University of Windsor’s Anti-Black Racism task force has released a report with 40 recommendations for how UWindsor can better support the Black student population. The task force found that, despite reports from incidents such as Jordan Afolabi’s ban from campus and racist and homophobic messages from Delta Chi members, “[p]recious little has been accomplished.” The report notes that Black faculty, staff, and students still do not feel safe or protected at the institution and continue to endure racist and dehumanizing behaviour. The report recommends actions in 10 separate areas, which include restructuring the office of human rights, equity, and accessibility; creating Black-centric inclusivity expectations, developing a safe space for Black students, and auditing the equity of Lancer Athletics.
