Equity, Racial Justice, and Indigenous Initiatives

At the University of Alberta we envision and cultivate a community where equity and diversity are fundamental to inclusive excellence in learning, teaching, research, service, and community engagement.

In the Faculty of Arts, the fostering of a welcoming and inclusive culture for all members and guests of our community in both physical and virtual environments is our guiding principle. We acknowledge that diversity in gender identity and expression, race, sexual orientation, ability, class, ethnicity, nation, and religion is key to our excellence now and in the future. We are committed to taking deliberate action towards dismantling the conditions that allow for structural oppression and racism to persist and to ensure diversity thrives in our community and enriches the lives of all.
