    Pros

    Incredible experience here! Lot's of great opportunities and a very fun location. Students are very friendly!

    Cons

    Only thing I can say here is that the weather is biting in the winter! But that obviously has nothing to do with the work itself! Just a funny little con.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing I can think of here!

    Several Ontario universities have expressed interest in implementing the diversity and equity planning tool created by Queen's University. "It's often difficult to identify opportunities and measure successes. It's hard to say 'this is the progress we've made or the progress we are making,'" says Jane Ngobia, Assistant Vice-President, Diversity and Human Rights, University of Guelph.
