Waterloo's commitment

Waterloo stands by their Principles of Inclusivity which were created to acknowledge, communicate, and promote an understanding of the complexity and uniqueness of the University of Waterloo’s campus community, presenting the ideals by which campus members should engage one another – with respect, sensitivity, and fairness. View the Principles of Inclusivity on Organizational & Human Development's website.
