A statement from President Levy about activities at a recent engineering event

This past Thursday an event was held on campus organized by the engineering orientation committee. There is no excuse for the completely unacceptable activities that took place at the event, and anyone who contends it is ‘just fun’ or ‘builds community’ has no place at Ryerson. My response to the students and the community is to express my strongest determination that this kind of behaviour never happens again.

The university is categorical in affirming it does not condone student conduct that demeans individuals in any way, and I am making clear our shock and anger in the face of this departure from dignity. We have very strong policies in place that have been invoked immediately to deal with those involved.

The university executive is meeting with the leadership of the Ryerson Engineering Students Society on Monday. This incident does not represent the principles of civil society, and the positive and supportive culture of Ryerson.
