One of the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-racism key functions on campus is to build knowledge, skills and awareness related to equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism. We do this by offering relevant educational opportunities, including competency and capacity building complimented with additional learning resources.
