A message of support

- September 20, 2023

Dalhousie is firmly committed to building positive, affirming spaces that promote the learning and well-being of members of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities. Our university is richer for the contributions of sexually and gender diverse members within our community.

Building supportive educational spaces is crucial to the healthy learning and development of children and youth, as they explore their sexuality, gender expression, and gender identity. Many of our own scholars and experts are making critical contributions to the body of evidence, and policy and practice improvements across sectors like education and healthcare, to support 2SLGBTQIA+ youth in fully realizing their potential to thrive.

Today, and every day, we stand in support of our 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Members of our community seeking supports are encouraged to reach out to the following resources:

Rick Ezekiel, MSc, PhD (he/him), Vice-Provost Student Affairs, Dalhousie University

Olivia Fader (she/her), 2SLGBTQ+ Advisor, Dalhousie University
