Message from the President

I am pleased to see the President of the University of Guelph taking up this affair in his personal blog, hosted by the University.  His comments are a welcome addition to the dialogue as we move forward as a community.

Respect is the most fundamental right of human beings and a value we uphold at this university. 

I applaud and strongly support those who are standing up to say that these limericks are inappropriate and I urge others to take the time to understand why such jokes can be harmful, and to use words carefully and in a manner that respects all individuals in our community.
