The EDIO plays a critical role in promoting an equitable and inclusive campus community, free from discrimination or harassment based on age, disability, race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, family status, marital status, and, record of offences.
We work to support UTSC by building trusting and enduring relationships with our communities, supporting initiatives that address barriers to access, and developing educational resources that promote continued learning and growth in the areas of equity, diversity and inclusion.
The EDIO provides two types of consultations:
1. Human Rights Consultation: Student, staff or faculty want to have a conversation about potential harassment or discrimination on Human Rights Code Grounds.
2. EDI Consultation: Connecting with student, staff or faculty on document review or advising departments/campus members on EDI initiatives.
