St. Jerome's University's?commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) is embedded in the fifth commitment in the "Our Culture" section of its Strategic Plan, Building on Tradition, 2016-2021. In October 2017, St. Jerome's University and other members endorsed the Universities Canada seven?Inclusive Excellence Principles?as part of their?ongoing commitment to advance equity, diversity and inclusion. At the same time, Universities Canada (UC) committed to a?five-year action plan?to support members’ progress. UC’s Report was released in late October 2019.

?

One of the seven Inclusive Excellence Principles highlights the need for universities to develop EDI action plans. To make good on this commitment, the SJU community is engaging in a three-phase process.
