UWindsor Campus Pride Centre closes, works on new security measures after vandalism

The University of Windsor’s Campus Pride Centre has closed for the remainder of the school year after it was vandalized with homophobic slurs. According to UWindsor Students’ Alliance members, vulgar language was carved into the door in three consecutive incidents, which were reported to campus police. The pride centre coordinator closed the centre due to safety concerns and is working with special constable services and university administration to put security measures in place before the Pride Centre reopens in the Fall. “These acts of prejudice have highlighted the ongoing challenges faced by 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals and reaffirmed our commitment to fostering a safe, inclusive and supportive environment on campus,” stated the student alliance.
