For students, faculty, and staff:
Innis College’s re-entry plans and decision-making is guided by an approach that prioritizes the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, and the surrounding community in which we reside. The re-opening of College operations is taking a measured approach as informed by public health guidelines and corresponding directives from the University.
We’re Innis Together
These are extraordinary times, and more than ever we must remind ourselves of our commitment to diversity, inclusion, respect, and civility. COVID-19 continues to reveal how systemic health inequities have differential impacts on our communities. We all have a role to play in ensuring our safety and the safety of others. Our strategy emphasizes the importance of individual and collective responsibility. We are Innis together.
Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
The coronavirus has profoundly exposed us to physical and mental health risks; however, other concerns are emerging including xenophobia, bullying, and other discriminatory behaviours. Innis College and the University prohibits discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, creed, sexual orientation, gender expression, and/or disability. We are committed to maintaining a learning and working environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and disrespectful behaviour.
If you are experiencing discrimination or harassment, and are seeking additional supports, please consider services provided by the University’s Equity Offices.
University Safety Protocols in Place
The University has implemented a number of directives to enhance its safety measures and ensure a safe learning and working environment for its community.
