Bringing together different perspectives unlocks creativity that leads to positive outcomes for all. For Carleton University, achieving this means enhancing student experiences and creating a high-quality learning environment that fosters student success in the classroom and beyond.
We recognize that the backgrounds, experiences and understandings of our students are diverse. That’s why we’re committed to building equitable, diverse and inclusive student support services and re-imagining curricular and pedagogical practices, research infrastructure and leadership development for our staff.
Carleton is committed to ensuring the positive experiences of all students. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) has been identified by Carleton’s Board of Governors, Federal Tri-Agency Research Funders, faculty, staff, public and private sector employers, and all other members of the external community as critical to the future success of the university. Following the consultation process, the Carleton EDI Action Plan was officially launched in March of 2021.
For more information, visit the EDI Action Plan website.
