Building a community that values and respects individuals of all backgrounds, identities and experiences.

Welcome to the Office of Equity

The Office of Equity brings together two complementary functions: the existing compliance function and a more robust education and community training function.

While the compliance function is currently housed in the Office of Civil Rights and Title IX Compliance, the vision for the new Office of Equity is much broader than the traditional compliance function. An assessment of patterns in our compliance issues can lead to a deeper understanding of barriers in Western’s systems and structures. The Office of Equity also encompasses the broader functions of engaging individuals and groups in education, dialogue and learning; building community; examining Western’s systems and structures through an equity lens; and providing visibility to, and advancing, key initiatives for inclusive student success and ADEI work on campus.
