SFU’s goal is to ensure our campuses are welcoming places for everyone to gather and learn and that all who work or study here feel a sense of belonging, inclusion, fairness and mutual respect. The ultimate goal is to create the conditions to foster a culture of inclusion and healthy campus environment.
There is important work ahead. We need to redouble our efforts to create a safe and inclusive campus where we can all thrive.
“Addressing systemic issues can seem intimidating, but I believe it’s important that we start from a framework of possibility. We have strengths we can build on. [...]What we’ve heard from our community is that it’s time to act. ”
