The Office of the Associate Dean, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Indigeneity is committed to engagement, learning and advocacy that centres on the richly diverse heritage, age, abilities, life trajectories, religion, race, sexual orientation, gender identity and expressions of our students, staff and faculty.  Our work includes seeking commonalities, acknowledging and understanding differences, identifying EDII practitioners and leaders, and harnessing EDII knowledge and activity within the eight Departments and Schools of the Faculty. The actions and initiatives described here are the result of the collective effort, dedication and enthusiasm of many students, staff and faculty committed to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion across the institution.
