Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Faculty, staff, and students in the Department of Physics are committed to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion in our programs. We recognize and celebrate the diversity and lived experiences of our students. We aspire for our classrooms and research groups to be supportive and affirming spaces for all people regardless of their race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, culture, religion, and socioeconomic status. We are committed to listening and learning how to best support our diverse student population.

Faculty of Science EDI Committee

The Faculty of Science is also committed to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion . The Faculty EDI committee has created a teaching toolkit which contains resources on how to incorporate the principles of EDI into teaching, particularly for science courses.

The Faculty has also organized an engaging new event series that aims to increase Awareness, Collaboration and Engagement (ACE), and advance Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) efforts in the Faculty of Science. Please check out upcoming and previous online ACE EDI events and plane to join us at the next one.
