Strategies and Policies

Learn more about the various initiatives from the OEDI and how it is guided by UCalgary's policies and procedures working in conjunction with UCalgary strategies. 

By developing policies and initiatives from a foundation of equity, diversity, and inclusion, we break down systems that rob many among us of opportunities that are rightfully theirs. By creating foundational guides, we are more equipped at working towards creating environments where every individual can thrive.
