How will having this information remove barriers for underrepresented student groups?

The information we gather helps us see who’s here and who isn’t – at the University in general, and in specific faculties and programs. It lets us know whether we’re adequately engaging and supporting students from diverse backgrounds, particularly those who are historically and currently underrepresented in post-secondary education. It helps us to better understand the experience of students and how this might be impacted by intersections of various aspects of their identities.

Examples of action may include: 

  • Assessment of the effectiveness of student support programming and services. 
  • Increasing support for underrepresented student communities at the outreach, recruitment, and admissions stages, and throughout their time at the University.
