The President’s Advisory Committee for Human Rights, Equity and Decolonization (PACHRED) is seeking new members.
Nominations will be accepted by the PACHRED Nominations Committee until Friday, April 22 at 11:59 p.m. Interested Brock University students, faculty and staff can find details about the application process and committee requirements on the PACHRED web page.
As Brock University, and society as a whole, continues to navigate a period of unprecedented change, PACHRED’s members will provide invaluable guidance along the way, said Nominations Chair and PACHRED Staff Co-Chair Brad Clarke, the University’s Director of Student Life and Success.
“As work is done to advance human rights, PACHRED members will help to shape the campus and community experience for the betterment of Brock today and into the future,” he said.
In addition to advising Interim University President Lynn Wells, PACHRED serves to share information across campus and collaborate on the common goals of community members to address opportunities and concerns associated with human rights, equity or decolonization. The committee also unifies the activities of six affiliated working groups: 2SLGBT++, Anti-Ableism and Mental Health, Anti-Racism, Decolonization, Employment Equity, and Sexual Violence Prevention.
PACHRED Faculty Co-Chair and Professor of Educational Studies Dolana Mogadime said the committee’s members strive to work collaboratively across advocacy groups in order to collectively make a difference across Brock University’s campus.
PACHRED, she added, is an opportunity for Brock faculty, staff and students to have their voices heard on a variety of critical issues.
Student Co-Chair Rabia Choudhary said involvement in the committee provides unique opportunities for all involved.
“PACHRED plays an instrumental role in creating change across campus, as the various concerns and experiences of students, staff and faculty are heard and validated,” she said. “Overall, PACHRED allows for individuals to grow and learn in their advocacy.”
PACHRED meets at least four times each academic year. For accessibility, it is expected that the committee’s meetings will be virtual via Teams in the 2022-23 cycle. For more information, contact Gloria Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org
