Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Faculty, staff, and students in the Department of Earth Sciences are committed to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion in our programs. We recognize and celebrate the diversity and lived experiences of our students. We aspire for our classrooms and research groups to be supportive and affirming spaces for all people regardless of their race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, culture, religion, and socioeconomic status. We are committed to listening and learning how to best support our diverse student population.

Now that online teaching is everywhere and students need support to access technology resources, Carleton University offers financial aid for students who need this assistance as well as single workplaces for student use on campus. If you have any questions or need the financial aid, please email covidinfoatcarleton [dot] ca.

The Department of Earth Sciences are also represented on the Faculty of Science EDI committee, which has organized an engaging new event series that aims to increase Awareness, Collaboration and Engagement (ACE), and advance Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) efforts in the Faculty of Science. Please check out upcoming and previous online ACE EDI events and plan to join us at the next one. There is also an EDI Teaching Toolkit for Instructors that provides ideas to diversify science education to support recruitment, retention, and advancement of all students and bring topics of EDI to the curriculum.
