Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

What does the Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Office do at UTSC?

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Office (EDIO) is a central resource for all UTSC community members (students, staff, and faculty) to provide training, programming, and engagement initiatives related to equity, access, discrimination, and harassment.

With a focus on intentional inclusion, the EDIO promotes equitable and inclusive campus communities, free from discrimination or harassment based on: 

Human Rights Grounds:
Age Creed
Disability Sex
Race Gender Expression
Ancestry Gender Identity
Place of Origin Sexual Orientation
Colour Family Status
Ethnic Origin Marital Status
Citizenship Record of Offences

We build trusting and enduring relationships with our community members to support initiatives that address and remove barriers to access, opportunities, and outcomes, and develop educational resources which inspire continued learning and growth in the areas of equity, diversity and inclusion.

How Do We Support?  

We guide and assist students, staff, and faculty in resolving issues that involve equity, discrimination or harassment. As a part of our process, we meet to answer questions, share information about complaints resolution processes, and discuss the most appropriate options with you to work towards resolution.
