Institutions issue statements on recent declaration of war, violence in Israeli-Palestinian conflict


Numerous postsecondary institutions have issued statements in response to the recent violence and formal declaration of war in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Many institutions expressed their compassion for all students, staff, faculty, and community members who are affected by the conflict and shared wellness, equity, and care resources with their community. Brock University indicated that it is directly in touch with students and visiting scholars from the region, Sheridan College expressed concern for members of its community with family and friends in the affected region and who have “ties throughout Israel/Palestine,” and the University of Calgary urged its community to “continue to be kind to each other” given the “passionate and divergent feelings” about the broader context of the conflict.
