8:00 AM - 9:00 PM Educators in Emergencies? University Responses to Humanitarian Crises

The “Educators in Emergencies: University Responses to Humanitarian Crises” conference will be held on March 5 at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo. The conference, hosted by International Students Overcoming War (ISOW) at Laurier, will feature the Hon. Bob Rae, former Premier of Ontario and former Laurier Chancellor. The conference will examine how Canadian and American universities have responded to the humanitarian emergencies, particularly the Syrian refugee crisis. The conference will welcome attendees and speakers from Ontario and the United States.

The conference will feature a series of panels on university responses, as well as supporting the mental wellness of students from countries in conflict and how student leadership can facilitate humanitarian action. It will end with a brain-storming session on the ways in which students, staff, faculty, and community members can mobilize universities towards humanitarian action.

The conference will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Senate and Board Chambers at Laurier. Doors open at 8 a.m.

Mr. Rae’s keynote address will be held at Lazaridis Hall from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. A reception will follow.

ISOW is a student-run and student-funded initiative at Laurier that provides scholarships to students from areas of conflict. Since 2015, ISOW has sponsored 19 students to study at the university for the duration of an undergraduate or graduate degree.

Registration for the full-day conference.

  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Missing and Murdered Indigenous People in "Canada" (webinar)

    Jennifer Mt. Pleasant, a member of the Tuscarora Nation, knew that attending Laurier’s Brantford campus would allow her to explore her interest in criminology and make new connections while living at her childhood home on the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.

    What she didn’t know was how profoundly her education – and life – would change because of it.

    It was during a third-year undergraduate course that Mt. Pleasant first learned of Canada’s troubling cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women (MMIW).

    In June 2019, Laurier alumna, Jennifer Mt. Pleasant published "Missing & Murdered Indigenous People in "Canada": An inclusionary approach to understanding violence against the original people of Turtle Island". This webinar will seek to explore Indigenous people and societies in the pre-, early-, and post-contact eras.
