Learn about UBC's respective environment initiative.
The Respectful Environment Initiative was launched firstly to encourage workplace practices that foster an environment in which respect, civility, diversity, opportunity and inclusion are valued and secondly, to articulate the expectation that everyone at UBC conduct themselves in a manner that upholds the Statement’s principles in all communications and interactions with fellow UBC community members and the public in all University-related activities.
UBC’s Respectful Environment Statement speaks to our freedoms and our responsibilities, and provides the guiding principles to support us in building an environment in which respect, civility, diversity, opportunity and inclusion are valued.

All students, staff and faculty should be made aware of the Respectful Environment Statement as part of their orientation process. If you work at a hospital site, you should also be familiar with similar policies that those organizations may have.
