Keith Louise Fulton, a former Margaret Laurence Chair in Women’s Studies and retired professor of English from the University of Winnipeg, concluded optimistically:
“We remake the university each day as we walk through the doors and take up our work there. Refusing to lay down important parts of ourselves and our communities as we enter reverses what we have been taught and reclaims ourselves and the institution” (as quoted in Keahey & Schnitzer, 2003).
