McMaster shares in grief for victims of New Zealand mosque attack

The McMaster community shares in the grief and devastation felt around the world at the hateful attacks on two mosques in New Zealand.  This tragedy resonates globally and locally – across faith-groups – and we acknowledge that it can have particular impact on our local Muslim community members.  

This horrific act is a reminder of the importance of our ongoing community-building work to counter Islamophobia, and other forms of race and faith-based xenophobia.

The University flags will be lowered to half-mast to commemorate victims and their families.

The following support services are also available to members of the community who are seeking assistance:

Equity and Inclusion Office

Inter-faith Chaplaincy

Student Wellness Centre

McMaster Muslim Students Association

Employee and Family Assistance Program 

President’s Advisory Committee on Building an Inclusive Community
