Re: National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, Campus Events, December 4
  

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the murder of fourteen women students at l'Ecole Polytechnique. Ceremonies to commemorate this and other tragic events and to focus attention on the broader issues of violence against women will be held on December 4th, on all three campuses of the University:

* St. George 12:15 p.m. Great Hall, Hart House (with outdoor commemoration, weather permitting)
* UTSC 12:00 noon AA303
* UTM 12:00 noon Location: Student Centre Presentation Room

Although classes will not be cancelled for these events, we would be grateful if instructors could mention them to their students and be as flexible as they can be within their academic constraints. Administrative staff should consult with their supervisors who are also encouraged to be flexible within the constraints of maintaining operations.
