Bishop’s Researcher’s Commitments to EDI

Bishop’s University (BU) has always aimed to be an open, transparent, and supportive place of learning and employment. Our work environment is bilingual and multicultural, and we are committed to fight all kinds of racism, discrimination and harassment.

The Strategic Framework 2019-2024 at BU speaks about the collective Vision, Mission and Values but also, the Priorities and Objectives for the next 5 years.

Bishop’s University researchers are very-well respected academics in which they are committed in excellence in research and are responsible in applying and embodying the principle of EDI in their environment and culture. Bishop’s research will include EDI through:

  1. Understanding the factors contributing to inequalities, interventions, bring upon changes to eliminate this factor.
  2. Multi-disciplinary contributions to engage and bring upon programs, policies and best practices.
  3. Ensure an inclusive and equitable research climate in the institution, within the national and international research networks and associations.

Tri-Agency: Equity, Diversion and Inclusion (EDI)

Researchers at Bishop’s are also responsible to adopt the Tri-Agency: Equity, Diversion and Inclusion when applying to funding. The Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada are committed to excellence in research and research training. Achieving a more equitable, diverse and inclusive Canadian research enterprise is essential to creating the excellent, innovative and impactful research necessary to advance knowledge and understanding, and to respond to local, national and global challenges.

By putting in place these approaches, researchers can enhance their applications of an equity, diversity and inclusion. For more information on the EDI of the Tri-Agency, please consult their website.
