Undergraduate Studies is committed to creating and promoting an inclusive and diverse learning environment, in our offices, through our programming, and throughout our services supporting students. Our leadership team is currently developing a DEI strategy that will guide our efforts across the units. The strategy will be regularly reviewed and adapted to reflect the needs of the community we serve.
