Senate Policy on Women's Remembrance Day

In May 1998 Senate approved a policy to commemorate Women's Remembrance Day.

The policy encourages the administration to facilitate the planning and funding of activities appropriate to Women's Remembrance Day through the Office of the Adviser to the University on the Status of Women.

The Senate policy also encourages faculty to highlight Women's Remembrance Day in their classes and to incorporate in their classes, as appropriate, some of the issues facing women, particularly violence against women. The Administration is asked to support the development of workshops to assist faculty with their preparations.

Classes are cancelled between the hours of 11:30 am to 1:30 pm on December 6 or on an alternate day identified by the Office of the Adviser to the University on the Status of Women.

Information about this policy is provided to students in publications such as Calendars and Lecture Schedules. The University community will also be informed in advance of activities associated with Women's Remembrance Day.
