The Office for Student Diversity
The Office for Student Diversity is committed to fostering diversity by offering a welcoming and supportive environment for all Laurier students. They also aim to nurture a learning and student centered environment that respects differences in culture, age, gender, gender expression, race, ethnicity, national origin, physical ability, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation.
The Office for Student Diversity works together with the Rainbow
Centre, Womenís Centre, Chaplainís Office, Association of Black
Student, Aboriginal Students Services and Student Diversity Committee
to provide safe spaces, education, advocating, and to celebrate the
uniqueness of every student at Laurier.
Women's Centre: The WLU Womenís Centre is a student service which strives to build a
community of people and ideas that challenge and examine gender
inequalities. We firmly believe that everyone should have equal access
to education in a positive learning environment. We hope to provide a
space where women can feel safe and affirmed, in recognition of the
gender-specific barriers and inequalities that women face. To visit the website, click here.
Rainbow Centre: The WLU Rainbow Centre is a safe, fun and supportive space where everyone at Laurier and in the broader community is welcome, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We advocate for and provide awareness about the LGBTQ community, while acting as a social outlet and resource centre. To visit the website, click here.
Aboriginal Student Services: The Aboriginal Student Services mandate is to provide culturally-relevant, holistic student support services and programs to self-identified Native students (Status, Non-Status, Metis, Inuit). To visit the website, click here.
