Concordia University of Edmonton is committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for work, study, and living. We actively promote dignity for all, rejecting action and language that are harmful to mutual respect. Thoughtful scrutiny and the civil debate of a variety of ideas and approaches are vital to the fulfillment of CUE’s purpose, and are encouraged as essential elements of inclusion. Together we create a community that supports a diversity of perspectives.
Many forms of diversity, and the differing perspectives they offer, are embraced and supported at CUE. These include, but are not limited to, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender identity and expression, class, religion, disability, age, economic status, geographic location, and language/linguistic ability. To facilitate an inclusive university, all forms of discrimination are strictly prohibited, and all members of our community share in the responsibility of recognizing, preventing, and responding appropriately to incidents of discrimination, along with engaging in the promotion and ongoing evolution of an accepting, supportive, and welcoming campus culture.
As a member of Universities Canada, CUE subscribes to the seven Inclusive Excellence Principles and works in good faith to uphold the commitments enshrined therein. In doing so we enforce strict policies against discrimination and harassment and adhere to codes of conduct for employees and students that align with our inclusive values.
