An independent External Panel on Campus Safety and Security has been established to direct research, engage in fulsome consultations and provide its conclusions to the president. A statement by President Mohamed Lachemi noted that the panel is undertaking the critical work of determining a holistic approach to enhancing safety and security at Ryerson and addressing the unique challenges the university faces.
The safety and security of the Ryerson community continues to be one of the university’s top priorities in order to maintain an inclusive, people-friendly and safe environment for all. The key challenge is to establish an intersectional, interdisciplinary campus safety service-delivery model that is firmly rooted in Ryerson’s commitment to values of equity, diversity and inclusion and to confronting and disrupting racism, including anti-Black racism.
The panel includes the Honourable Harry LaForme (Chair), Annamaria Enenajor, Hamlin Grange, Arleen Huggins and Shawn Richard.
