Wilfrid Laurier University is committed to equity, diversity, inclusion (EDI), and Indigeneity as core values. As such, the institution is asking members of the Laurier community to share their thoughts and opinions on EDI.
University campuses are not immune to racism, a pervasive societal problem. We recognize there’s much work to do toward racial justice. In a concerted effort to realize our EDI goals, Laurier has launched an action plan with timelines and accountability leads. One of these action items was to develop an institutional strategy for EDI that aligns with Laurier’s academic mission.
In November 2020, the EDI Strategic Planning Committee (SPC-EDI) was formed to assist in the development and completion of this university-wide EDI strategic plan. A key feature of the committee’s mandate is to hear views from the broader university community about how to embed equity, diversity, inclusion, and Indigeneity from an institutional perspective.
As one way to share their views, students, staff, faculty and alumni are invited to participate in an anonymous, online survey until May 14, 2021. Please note the survey is open to members of the Laurier community only, and you will need your MyLaurier username and Laurier password to log in.
Input from the survey will be used to inform the development of the EDI strategic plan, which will be submitted to Laurier’s Senate in fall 2021. The survey is an opportunity to share your ideas for how Laurier can best shape its structures and processes to ensure EDI becomes firmly rooted in all aspects of the university.
Survey results will also help in making the campus community more welcoming for all students, staff, faculty, alumni and partners.
