Equity & Professionalism

The University of British Columbia is a community dedicated to the advancement of learning. To achieve this goal, the University seeks to provide every one of its students, faculty, staff and student employees with the best possible environment for work and study.

Equity in the Workplace

The University has policies dedicated to upholding equity in the workplace. These policies are administered by the UBC Office of the University Counsel.

The UBC Equity office is available to support and advise all university staff members with equity or discrimination concerns. The Office works to prevent discrimination and harassment on campus, to provide procedures for handling complaints and to coordinate UBC's employment and educational equity program.

The office helps educate members of the UBC community about their rights and responsibilities. Workshops and training sessions for students, staff and faculty on issues such as discrimination and harassment, equity and diversity are offered regularly.
