Inclusive Programming

#URGradExperience promotes equity, diversity and inclusion in all dimensions of the graduate student experience. The Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (FGSR) respectfully acknowledges that the University of Regina campuses are located on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 Territories. Indigenous culture and knowledge are part of our community as we build a culture welcoming of our diverse student body. Our graduate programming fosters a culture of inclusion and diversity with zero tolerance for discrimination and racism. 

FGSR provides support for all students with dedicated equity, diversity and inclusion workshops, events and resources.  Our graduate students and postdocs inclusive of those who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ+ or racialized groups. We learn from each other and work together in mutual respect.  Understanding of different experiences associated with diverse others enriches students’ careers and equips them with the skills required to respond to prejudice in our diverse communities.

We invite you to check out and contribute to FGSR Diversity Calendar aiming to recognize and celebrate significant cultural and social dates for all members of our graduate community. Below are other examples of #URGradExperience inclusive programming:

BIPOC Diversity Group

FGSR supports graduate students who identify as Indigenous, Black or People of Color (BPOC). Students from these visible minority or racialized groups meet regularly to build communities of support and solidarity. Please check BIPOC meetings and events here.

Indigenous Supports

Indigenous graduate students have a variety of support services available to facilitate their success.   

Non-Indigenous students are especially encouraged to learn about the Indigenous experience and complete the Four Seasons of Reconciliation training module.

The Saskatchewan Indigenous Mentorship Network is a program aimed at sustaining a network of Indigenous graduate students, new investigators, and established scholars in Saskatchewan.

UR Pride

The UR Pride Centre for Sexuality and Gender Diversity is a non-profit service provider housed at the University of Regina. UR Pride provides services and programming for the entire community of Regina, not just for the University of Regina. Learn more about UR Pride.
