Equity Commissioner

The Equity Commissioner heads the Equity Commission, which ensures that the SGPS conforms with equity policy and represents the SGPS on Equity-related issues. The Equity Commissioner works within the SGPS, with both Executive and Council members, to ensure that SGPS activities are broadly accessible, that hiring is fair and transparent, that training in equity issues and inclusivity is available, and that the rights of the diverse population of graduate and professional students are represented and protected under our Policies and Bylaws. The SGPS Equity Commissioner is also responsible for liaising with external bodies within Queen's - the Human Rights Office, the Alma Mater Society, and relevant Senate Committees - to ensure that the SGPS is engaged in university-wide policy decision-making processes; the SGPS Equity Commissioner is, therefore, also responsible for communicating the positions of these bodies to SGPS Council.

Interviews

International Students' Affairs Commissioner

Following the Ontario government's endorsement to further recruit international students, Queen's welcomes a growing proportion of graduate and professional students from all over the world. The SGPS is committed to ensuring that international students' needs are met in the process. International students often face systemic barriers to acclimatizing to Queen's and Kingston: deregulated tuition combined with limited financial aid opportunities, cultural differences, housing, and social isolation can pose challenges. The International Students' Affairs Commission exists to draw attention to existing service gaps, and to work to redress them. The International Students' Affairs Commissioner heads SGPS initiatives aimed at fulfilling both of these goals.
