VPAC equity and diversity
UVic is committed to equity, diversity, social justice and fostering a welcoming and diverse learning, teaching and working environment, we strive to enhance access by creating spaces and conditions for dialogue and the expression of all voices. These are essential elements in achieving excellence in research and education.
The adviser to the provost on equity and diversity works in collaboration with the provost, the VPAC diversity and equity steering committee and other offices on campus to identify barriers to access and accommodation for faculty, librarians, staff and students, to coordinate and communicate equity and diversity across campus and to ensure equity resources are available.
