Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee

The EDI Committee was established in fall 2019. 

The purpose of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee at the Faculty of Education is to cultivate an inclusive community; create welcoming classrooms and social spaces for all students, faculty, and staff; ensure equitable and inclusive policies, processes, curriculum, and events; and support marketing, recruitment, and retention initiatives that enhance a diverse teaching and learning community at the Faculty.  

The EDI Committee is a central point of contact for EDI concerns, and supports and advocates for systemic change for students, faculty, and staff. 

Concerns and issues brought to the EDI Committee should be in writing (either by email or at the link below) and be systemic in nature (e.g. faculty policy, processes, services, marketing/communications materials, etc) that the committee can respond to and make recommendations for change, particularly at the Faculty level. The Committee is not equipped to respond to individual complaints regarding racism, assault, or specific incidents faced by individuals. However, the committee can make referrals to the correct resource at the faculty or Queen’s. EDI Committee members, including co-chairs, may choose to invite a proxy to address issues that may be a conflict of interest.

Contact co-chairs Becca Carnevale or Claire Ahn directly.

The terms of reference and the full vision statement are shared here. The full list of committee members for 2020-21 is available here. Dr. Alana Butler began her role as the inaugural EDI Coordinator for the Faculty of Education on May 1. Read more about the EDI Coordinator role here

An important project for the group this winter is to develop an EDI space on Student Street. Check back here for updates!
