Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Oppression

Essential to the implementation of EDI-AO, is the alignment with the University of Regina 2020-2025 strategic plan, entitled Kahkiyaw kiwâhkômâkaninawak All Our Relations.  It is within the strategic plan that EDI-AO is defined as an institutional value that addresses the University of Regina's commitment to creating and promoting equitable systems for students, faculty and staff. True alignment signifies the power of interconnectedness and transforming thought and word into deed and action while honouring who we are, where we are, where we have been, and where we are going.  Inclusive of the communities served, staff, faculty, leadership, students and notably individuals who identify with an equity-deserving group, the aforementioned propositions will guide the University of Regina to mirror the world we want to live in.

The Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Oppression commitment is broadly defined within the Strategic Plan.
