Where all thrive:
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

At SFU, we are dedicated to creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive community where we use our humility, compassion, intellect and position to dismantle systemic and cultural barriers. Together, we are creating a community where all feel welcome, safe, accepted and appreciated in learning, teaching, research and work. We are privileged to do this work on the unceded traditional territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, Katzie and Kwikwetlem peoples.

A message from the chair

"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.”

Joy Johnson, Vice-President Research and International
Chair, EDI Executive Sub-Committee
