On September 2, 2020, the Massey Community unexpectedly lost a very dear friend, mentor, and colleague. Senior Fellow Christine Karcza was an incredible person.
Massey College is committed to the safety of its staff and residents while continuing to pursue its mission of nourishing learning and serving the public good.
Thank you for the many messages about the passing of Christine Karcza. Christine was integral in the development of Massey College’s Accessibility policies and helping the College identify, prevent and discover ways to remove barriers to participation in our programs.
The last few weeks have been difficult for all of us. I want to thank everyone who has participated in the conversation and who expressed their criticism, support, disappointment, or anger. Massey benefits from a very engaged community.
A reminder that everyone is invited to listen in to an important conversation on Anti-Black Racism with Senior Fellow Dr. Alissa Trotz, Dr. Lisa Robinson, and Junior Fellow Frank Otabor this afternoon.
On Thursday morning, Principal Nathalie Des Rosiers announced that the College, in response to new information relating to the appointment of Ms. Margaret Wente to the Quadrangle Society, would undertake a review of Ms. Wente’s writings and conduct to assess whether they are consistent with the College’s values.
