Welcome to the Department of
Equity and Inclusive Communities (EIC)

As Carleton University continues to follow our safe meetings and social distancing guidelines, The Department of Equity and Inclusive Communities (EIC) has transitioned to providing services virtually during our regular business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday).

If you would like to meet with a member of our team, we are connecting with members of the community over Microsoft Teams or via phone.

The best way to make an appointment, send an inquiry, or otherwise connect with us is to email equity@carleton.ca. You should receive a reply to your inquiry within two business days.

Our Sexual Assault Support services continue to be available. You can access free and confidential support via web or text message with our new CU SASC CHAT service.

For immediate crisis support, you can contact the Ottawa Distress Centre at 613-238-3311 or the Sexual Assault Centre of Ottawa at 613-234-2266. For the most up to date campus information, please visit Carleton’s COVID-19 information website.

Go to the Centre for Indigenous Initiatives website.


We foster the development of an inclusive and transformational university culture where individual distinctiveness and a sense of belonging drive excellence in learning, research, teaching, and working at Carleton.
