Equity, diversity, and inclusion, including anti-racism, decolonization, and Indigenous resurgence, is the first guiding principle in the Faculty of Arts and Science Strategic Plan. The Faculty of Arts and Science aspires to be a thriving, equitable and inclusive scholarly community committed to innovative disciplinary and interdisciplinary research and teaching. Our goal is to inspire curiosity and to collaboratively engage with multiple forms of knowledge that span local and global contexts.

Current Faculty EDII initiatives are focused on the implementation of the recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Committee (TRC) reports put forth by both the Federal Government and the Queen’s Task Forces, and the Queen’s Principal’s Implementation Committee on Racism, Diversity and Inclusion (PICRDI) report.

Information on resources and programs at Queen's can be found through the Office of Indigenous Initiatives and the Human Rights and Equity Office. Explore the sections below to learn more about the initiatives supported by the Faculty of Arts and Science.
