Update: McMaster Encampment Ends

This evening, protestors agreed to end an encampment on McMaster’s main campus that started on May 5th 

Tents are set to come down from the area near the Burke Science building by Saturday evening. 

A series of meaningful discussions have led to the dismantling of the encampment. Details of the resolution can be found here. The university continues to maintain its core principles of freedom of expression and academic freedom.   

This has been a very difficult time for many people on our campus. We recognize the profound grief that so many are experiencing. 

We also appreciate the willingness of those in the encampment who were willing to participate in such productive discussions.  

We hope to continue to find ways to have meaningful, respectful dialogue within our university community that reflects the diversity of views, lived experiences and perspectives across campus.
