Students, faculty at Brescia “devastated” by integration announcement


Students and faculty at Brescia University College are “devastated” after last week’s news that Brescia would be fully integrating into Western University in May 2024. A group of students shared their intent to hold a protest later this week, start a letter-writing campaign, and distribute petitions. “We just want the university experience we were promised,” said first-year Brescia student Alex Wild. “We want that safe space, the small class sizes, the manageable campus and the opportunities for female leaders.” Brescia faculty association president Heather Kirk said that they were “completely blindsided” by the news: “It’s devastating for both faculty and students.”
