Diversity Action Group

Fall 2014 Activity

Members worked on leveraging diversity in own classroom. They recognized the need to broaden the conversation to approach the topic of diversity in a more institution-wide endeavour. They also recognized certain programs are already active in working with diversity while others need to move on existing needs. They feel diversity is acknowledged and understood, but not actively included in course planning and development in many programs.

Spring 2015 Activity

The members gathered info in teams and visited department/faculties, beginning with Toni and Louis who were the speakers at the January 29th Breakfast Club event in Cowichan. 

The intent then with the group is to take their experience on tour in addition to seeking information from faculty to build a collection of best practices. They plan to create a way to showcase this information once gathered and collated.
