Across North America there is an increasing need to address issues of equity and inclusion at all levels of higher education institutions.  College administrators and faculty are essential leaders who can proactively create inclusive and equitable campus environments. The Centre for Global Citizenship Education and Inclusion (GCEI) is launching a unique Equity and Inclusion Specialist Program specifically designed for college administrators and faculty. This comprehensive program will further provide knowledge, tools and resources to effectively respond to and integrate equitable practices that reduce systemic barriers and further build inclusion.


Supporting Trans, Gender Non-Conforming, and Two-Spirit Students & Employees

Participants will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of issues and barriers facing trans, gender non-conforming, and two- spirit students and employees
  • Recognize the significance of these issues as they pertain to our role as leaders in the College
