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 Skype, FaceTime, Microsoft Teams or via phone.

We are also offering online peer support for sexual violence via Google Hangout from Monday to Friday, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

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

You can also access text support for sexual violence by texting us at 613-292-1422 from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

For immediate crisis support, you can contact the Ottawa Distress Centre at 613-238-3311 or the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre at 613-562-2333. For the most up to date campus information, please visit Carleton’s COVID-19 information 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.
