As we transition back to campus, in Fall 2021 you will find three modes of delivery for courses: in person, remote (these are courses that are typically held on campus but that are being held online to promote degree progression, many of these courses have synchronous sessions), and undergraduate online (ASO) (these are courses that are regularly offered as part of our online course options).
In Winter 2022, the majority of courses will be on-campus with some undergraduate online (ASO) courses.

Calls for the PSYC EDI committee

Undergrad members for the Psychology EDI Committee
The Psychology Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee includes two undergraduate members, and we are soliciting names of those who might be interested in sitting on the committee.
The commitment include a 1.5 hour meeting once/month from September-April plus 1-2 hours committee work/week (though often/usually less); we hope undergraduate members could sit on the committee from July-June but understand that summer months can pose a barrier for undergrads so these are optional.
If you are interested, please email Suzanne DeSousa at psyc.office@queensu.ca who will send you the committee's goals, policies, and group rules. In that email, or after you get that information, please email the following to the same (Suzanne DeSousa at psyc.office@queensu.ca):
a. One paragraph or so indicating your:
i. Interest in the EDI committee;
ii.Expertise and experience with EDI topics/issues/communities including research, coursework, community involvement, activism, and/or lived experience;
