Strategy 4: Inclusive Excellence

Cultivate a diverse community that creates and sustains equitable and inclusive campuses

We are reviewing and revising policies, practices and services to reflect our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. We are expanding learning opportunities for staff and faculty to maximize awareness and understanding of these principles. We are assessing the UBC landscape to identify areas needing focussed attention, including systems, structures and processes that can be improved to facilitate better access and success. Enhanced diversity in leadership is a core enabler of effective university governance, and we seek to create equitable opportunities for advancement and selection. We are promoting continued research on issues connected with diversity, equity and inclusion, including disability studies. And we will establish and implement visible, system-wide accountability mechanisms and metrics to help us assess and manage our progress towards Inclusive Excellence.
