Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) have been identified by Carleton’s Board of Governors, Federal Tri-Agency Research Funders, faculty, staff, students, public and private sector employers, and other members of the external community as critical to the future success of the university.
While the university has taken steps to lay the foundation for progress, much work to advance human rights and EDI still needs to be done. As a large institution, the university is an extension of society and is not insulated from its challenges.
Following a consultative process in 2020, the Carleton University EDI Action Plan was officially launched in March 2021.
This comprehensive plan outlines ways to reimagine curricular and pedagogical practices, and commits to further enhancing student supports, research infrastructure, leadership development for academic and non-academic staff, organizational culture and more.
