Department of Global Development Studies

    Community and wellness

    Community and wellness, which includes diversity, inclusivity, equity and integrity, are intrinsic to the DEVS vision. We strive to achieve these goals within the department itself but would also like to direct students to the wealth of resources and professional support services freely available to them through the wider University.

    The Human Rights Office is another autonomous unit that serves to promote awareness of the broad spectrum of human rights, and to address, discuss, and assist all members of the Queen’s community against instances of harassment or discrimination on or off campus.  

    Students may approach the office with absolute assurance of confidentiality and integrity on issues ranging from gender, race and racism, immigration problems, domestic violence, sexual orientation and much more. The Office also supplies a wealth of educational material, for example:

    In addition, we encourage students to approach their instructors and tutorial assistants in a timely manner to request reasonable accommodation for faith.

    For students who may be struggling with time management, research and writing skills, note-taking, exam preparation or other academic challenges, academic support services are also available to help. Please book a free, confidential appointment for consultation and check the website for workshops.

    Finally, your instructors will remind you (perhaps too often for your liking) that DEVS adheres to the Queen’s principles of academic integrity in policy and in spirit. When in doubt, please consult
