January 2023: COVID 19 Test Requirements

King’s University College at Western University stands in solidarity with all those suffering from the violence and injustices of the Ukraine-Russia war and all who are experiencing violence and oppression throughout the world.

Western University has issued a statement of support to all students and our President Dr. David Malloy is a signatory to the ACCUC letter in condemning the violent actions. We stand in support of students, faculty and staff with connections to Ukraine and to Russian communities who oppose these and all acts of violence.

Many experts are providing commentary on the war.  At King’s, history professor Dr. Oleska Dracheych, spoke with local media to share his insights about the invasion.  As a university community we struggle to make sense of this devastating situation and we seek to offer our support to all in the community who are impacted by this crisis.

If you are a student who is having difficulty accessing funds as a result this crisis or who wishes to speak with someone, please contact King’s International at international@kings.uwo.ca or the Dean of Students Office at acsd@kings.uwo.ca and you will be given support and directed to appropriate resources.

Opportunities are available for the university community to participate in relief efforts to support those living in Ukraine.
