Kingston, ON – Today, following his attendance at a coronavirus themed event, Undergraduate Trustee Tyler McIntyre announced his resignation.
The Coronavirus event directly went against the AMS’s values, and the values of our community, and we do not condone it or events like it. We remain, as always, vehemently opposed to behavior that is discriminatory in any way.
If you have been affected by these events, we encourage you to reach out for support. A list of resources available on campus is provided at the end.
