Our hearts go out to all those affected by the horrific act of targeted violence that occurred June 28, 2023 in a University of Waterloo classroom, seriously injuring a professor and two students, and impacting their community as a whole.

University campuses and classrooms must remain places where open and critical inquiry can occur in an atmosphere of safety, peace, and respect.

The University of Winnipeg joins our institutional peers nationwide in condemning gender-based violence and all forms of intimidation, discrimination, and hatred. Together, we are committed to fostering an inclusive, safe, and welcoming environment for all.


Reflecting on this incident can be troubling. If you are struggling, reach out for help.
