In the fall of 2021, Grenfell Campus announced its intention to establish an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion- Anti-Racism (EDI-AR) campus committee. The attention to EDI-AR aligns with Memorial University of Newfoundland's commitment to reflecting the communities served, not only in terms of students, staff, faculty, and leadership, but also in regards to Indigenous peoples, racialized people, people with disabilities, people with diverse religious beliefs and practices, gender and sexual minorities, and women. The EDI-AR committee of the Grenfell Campus will act as the main discussion and advisory body on matters of equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism.
The committee will be comprised of representation from both academic and staff representatives from all schools, non-academic units, students and the vice-president. If you would like to be a part of this committee, or if you would like to encourage someone you know to be a part, please fill out and/or share the form below. Nominations will remain open until end of the day, Monday, Oct. 25.
