What is Dis-Orientation Week?
DisOrientation Week is a tradition on some university campuses where students and community members can organize events and programming that highlight student and community resistance. Topics can include decolonial and anti-capitalist histories, housing/tenant rights, and history and introduction to student lobbying tactics of municipal and provincial government. The imagination is honestly the limit in the programming that can make up a DisO Week.
Join RPIRG, UR Pride, URSU, the ta- tawâw student centre and other campus and community organizations for a week of engaging workshops, speakers, socials, learning, agitation, and… DisOrientation!
