Institutions, researchers respond to Ukraine invasion

Several postsecondary institutions and researchers in Canada have issued statements and released supports in response to the Ukraine invasion. University of British Columbia President Santa Ono, University of Alberta President Bill Flanagan, University of Northern British Columbia President Geoff Payne, University of Manitoba President Michael Benarroch, and Vancouver Community College President Ajay Patel were among those who issued statements condemning the aggression and offering support for students and community members affected by the attacks. The University of Guelph is urging students, faculty, and staff who need assistance to reach out to the university’s support services. Some have also spoken to the potential impact on activities in the postsecondary sector: University of Calgary associate professor Robert Huebert spoke to CBC the impact that the attacks and subsequent sanctions may have on the Arctic Council, which is chaired by Russia, while Scott Jaschik penned an editorial about the impact of the invasion and how organizations like Scholars at Risk and CARA are responding around the world.
