Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Research

In terms of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), Bishop’s University has always aimed to be an open, transparent, and supportive place of learning and employment. We welcome approximately 2,400 students each year and employ more than 350 people. Our work environment is bilingual and multicultural, and we are committed to fight all kinds of racism, discrimination and harassment. We have developed different tools to help us achieve our goals in terms of EDI, including: Policy on the Prevention of Harassment, Policy for the Prevention of Sexual Violence, Policy on the Use and Quality of the French Language, Article 4.03 (on Racism and Discrimination) of the Faculty Collective Agreement.

We acknowledge and honor the traditional Abenaki territory on which our Campus is located and are aware of our role in a post-Truth and Reconciliation Commission [TRC] Canada. We hold formal discussions around it frequently as our institution also hosts the Indigenous Cultural Alliance. Recently, and in the lights of the Black Lives Matter MovementPrincipal Goldbloom addressed the University’s aspirations to progress towards a more open, diverse and inclusive community.

Upon consultation with BU community, the Principal requested the creation of a new Task Force on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. The latter will have as a mandate to make recommendations for actions related to hiring and retention, EDI training and inclusion in research programs and activities, and developing policies, procedures and guidelines.

The year 2020-21 will be marked by a more in-depth analysis of Bishop’s university’s environment, in part aided by an EDI stipend granted by the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat. The EDI grant objective is to help participating institutions address systemic barriers in their policies, processes and structures in order to respond to the requirements that are tied to the 2019 Addendum to the 2006 Canadian Human Rights Agreement for the Canada Research Chairs Program.
