Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the Department of Sociology

The Department of Sociology University of Alberta is committed to creating an equitable, diverse and inclusive community, where all department members are expected to respect the dignity of the human person regardless of race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, LGBTQ2S+ status, age, sexual orientation, family status, socioeconomic status, mental or physical disability, faith, and other characteristics. We are committed to actively fighting racism, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and the other institutions that support discriminatory structures of power.

We affirm our commitment to evaluate, recognize, and reward the labour of faculty, staff, and students in a collegial and supportive way within an explicitly anti-discrimination environment. Our department is also committed to incorporating EDI principles and practices in our syllabi and classroom management. This means that we consider various forms of knowledge and knowledge producers and maintain an atmosphere where the intellectual curiosity and potential of all our students can be nurtured for the improvement of society.
