REC HALL is one of the hot spots on campus for students looking to hang out in our lounge space in a comfortable, inviting environment. REC HALL strives to maintain an environment free of oppression and prejudice on and off campus by promoting diversity and respect through the facilitation of open-dialogue in both informal and formal settings such as our monthly REC TALK series.
We also provide peer support, host cultural events, do philanthropic work and have special programming designed to celebrate and appreciate our individual and cultural differences, allowing us to explore the meaning of multiculturalism and the positive impact we can all have on one another.
Acknowledging excellence through cultural diversity!
Students contribute to the centre in a variety of capacities. Some choose to help staff the centre by providing peer support services and a welcoming smile. Others help design and run our events, develop promotional strategies for our services, or participating in any of our active committees. All our volunteers are eligible for volunteer awards and receive certificates of achievement and letters of recommendation when needed.
The Race Ethnicity and Cultural Hall was opened on September 13, 2001 with the vision of building strategic partnerships across the University to generate constructive dialogue on issues of racial and cultural diversity. REC Hall creates an ambiance that promotes cultural and racial awareness and stimulates change across our campus. Since it was established the centre has been successful in building community among student groups, and has facilitated an improved discourse on issues of racism on our campus.
