The Faculty of Arts values equity, diversity and inclusion
Equity and Diversity Committee
The Faculty of Arts’ Equity and Diversity Committee works to fulfill the Faculty’s commitment to build a genuinely diverse community in our Faculty and deliberately seek ways to increase equity and diversity in all of its facets. Diversity includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicities, religions, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities and backgrounds.
The committee engages in activities that:
Promote an inclusive institutional climate that reflects, respects and celebrates diversity.
Raise awareness of discrimination and unconscious bias among faculty, students and staff.
Support members of the Faculty of Arts who experience discrimination at the University.
Ensure training opportunities for mentoring all faculty toward tenure and promotion and over the course of their careers.
Provide resources for effective inclusive pedagogies that support the learning of all students.
Create awareness and a shared sense of responsibility among faculty, staff and students to promote a learning and working culture that values equity, diversity and inclusion.
