Equity and Inclusivity

At UOIT, we aim to cultivate a welcoming, supportive and inclusive learning environment that builds on and celebrates the rich talents, interests and cultures of our students. In this way, we hope to create conditions under which all members of the community can flourish academically and professionally.  We can help you:

  • Learn about the university's behavioural standards that promote equity, compassion and respect.
  • Contribute to the elimination of sexual violence at the university.
  • Address concerns involving discrimination and harassment through information, resources and referrals.
  • Find out about safe spaces on campus where individuals can feel welcome, included and valued.
  • Connect with cultural groups and peers by getting involved in a campus club.
  • Find out where the prayer rooms are located on campus.
  • Find out about the different cultural and religious holy days that may be observed by your peers on the Interfaith Calendar

The Equity and Inclusivity Advisor, Akeish Lari, is available for meetings at the downtown campus on Thursdays and at north campus during the rest of the week. Book a time to meet with her at if you want to talk, need support or have ideas for equity events/campaigns.
