You are welcome here

We aim to create a welcoming space for all students. We recognize that some people have experienced systemic barriers based on their country of origin, gender identity and expression, Indigenous identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, ability and faith. We try to work in ways that contribute to dismantling these barriers.

We want to celebrate diversity and work to implement anti-racism and anti-bias practices. In addition, our team engages in ongoing professional development in cultural competence and humility training.

We strive to respect and affirm the dignity and worth of everyone who seeks emotional, physical and spiritual care.
