Please join us for an emergency town hall forum to address urgent questions regarding the US Executive Order (the so-called ‘Muslim Ban’) and its implications for the University community and for Canada. The Town Hall will address both the widespread and uneven implications of the order for the University’s staff, students, faculty, visitors and families, as well as the University’s broader societal and educational responsibilities in this moment.
