Queen’s Principal announces consultation on Athletics and Recreation proposals


Proposed changes to Queen’s University’s Athletics and Recreation department will be the subject of an extensive consultation prior to any final decisions being made, Principal Karen Hitchcock announced today.

The proposed changes are the result of an internal review of Queen’s Athletics and Recreation. The report from the review, which was recently submitted to Principal Hitchcock, includes recommendations on the organizational structure and financing of Athletics and Recreation, the university’s Campus Recreation and Sports Clubs, and Inter-university Athletics.

The recommendations propose significant change in a number of areas, including funding, fees and the number of inter-university athletic teams Queen’s should support.

“Because of the importance of this review and the significance of its recommendations, I am inviting feedback on the report from interested parties, prior to making any final decisions,” said Principal Hitchcock. “The consultation process will give all interested parties ample time to provide comments, including opportunities for students to fully engage in the process when they return this fall.”

The internal review was conducted by Janice Deakin, Dean, School of Graduate Studies & Research, and Bob Crawford, Professor, Computing Science and former Dean of Student Affairs.

“Dr. Deakin and Dr. Crawford are to be commended for their commitment, effort and creative and thoughtful analysis,” said Principal Hitchcock. “The recommendations reflect an integrated approach and a drive for excellence in all Athletics and Recreation programs.”
