UPEI President provides update on town hall, outlines steps forward


Following a recent town hall session about the report on the University of Prince Edward Island’s workplace culture, UPEI President Greg Keefe issued two statements to the community. Keefe explained that UPEI has “a number of steps” that it must take to address the issues identified in the report. In terms of immediate steps, Keefe writes that the university’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) and Sexual Violence Prevention and Response (SVPRO) departments–which were determined to be under-resourced–will be preparing staffing plans for implementation this fall. The institution will be looking to fill vacancies on its board using “an EDI lens” prior to governance training. The university will also be creating an action plan with measurable goals in order to address the problems raised in the report.
