World Aids Day

This Friday, December 1st is the nineteenth annual World AIDS Day. Events devoted to raising awareness about the global AIDS pandemic will take place throughout our three campuses, culminating in a collaborative event including speakers, music and theatre at Hart House.  This event will be followed by a candlelight vigil at Queen’s Park.

The motto for this year’s World AIDS Day is: Think about the challenge, be part of the solution.  Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to take part in the events on their campuses and in their faculties, and to attend this Friday evening at Hart House.
