Principal Dr. Susan Mumm’s Official Statement on U.S. Executive Order

Principal Dr. Susan Mumm in full support of Universities Canada Statement on U.S. Executive Order

As Canada’s only women’s university, and one that recognizes inclusion, diversity and religion at the heart of its values and mission statement, Brescia University College stands behind the statement by Universities Canada in response to the U.S. government’s recent executive order to ban citizens travelling from seven countries with Muslim majorities entering the United States for 90 days. 

“Canada’s universities continue to welcome students, faculty and staff from around the world, including those seeking refuge from violence and hardship. They strengthen Canada’s university communities, bringing new knowledge, talent and skills to higher education, research and innovation – to the benefit of all Canadians.”

Brescia also acknowledges the tragedy at the Quebec City mosque on Sunday, January 29 and will fly the Canadian flag at half-staff. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have lost loved ones and who have been impacted by this horrific act.
