On Sept. 28, along with many other UVic faculty, staff and students, the Continuing Studies team wore orange shirts to show respect for residential school survivors and their families, and commitment to the principle that every child matters.

The design for the 2017 UVic orange shirt was contributed by artist Carey Newman (Coast Salish/Kwagiulth). Proceeds support the UVic Elders Engagement Fund and the The Witness Blanket.
