In the wake of acts of racism and hate, Dawson College recommits to well-being for all

June 9th, 2020

Communities around the world have been mobilizing against racism in recent days. This mobilization is a reaction to the most recent murder of another unarmed Black person.

On May 25, George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis by a police officer after saying he could not breathe and pleading for his life. Even though we are living through a pandemic, many people decided that the risk of contracting COVID-19 was less important than showing solidarity with Black, Indigenous, people of colour and other marginalized groups.

Dawson College wishes to express our support for this struggle for justice and our desire to end systemic racism. Click Read More for the full statement.

Look who came to visit

March 17th, 2020

This little racoon came to visit the Communications Office March 6. He hung out on the outside of this window, napping and grooming himself, for at least five and a half hours. He attracted a lot of attention and we enjoyed his visit! Chris Adam of the Sustainability Office said that when it gets mild, they go out exploring looking for something to eat. If you spot wildlife on campus, or your new home campus, send us a photo and description of your encounter using the news contribution form.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

March 17th, 2020

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Perhaps a way to celebrate this year is to take part in a Shamrock Scavenger Hunt. In many neighbourhoods, people are hanging a shamrock in their window for the kids to find when they are out for a walk. For more info, see the Read More link. You could always celebrate on social media and share your shamrock there too.
