Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity, and Decolonization in Engineering

To shape a better society for all, a community of engineers as diverse as the problems we endeavour to solve is needed.

Engineering at Alberta seeks equity in access to our education programs and employment opportunities and to programming and supports for all current students and employees to succeed here.

We are committed to advancing equity, diversity, and inclusivity efforts in alignment with the University of Alberta’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity Strategy, the University of Alberta’s commitment to the Dimensions Charter, and the Faculty of Engineering’s Vision and Strategic Direction. We recognize that engineering as a discipline should reflect the diversity of Canadian society. And our everyday actions, leadership, and openness to learning are needed in the effort to increase equity and inclusivity in engineering education and work spaces.1
