G+PS statement In support of inclusive education at UBC


In light of the events happening around Canada today, UBC Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies wishes to express unwavering support for and commitment to inclusive education, which includes sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). As an educational institution, we’ve seen firsthand the benefit and importance of embracing and celebrating the principles of SOGI both within our community and beyond in order to create a safe space for students, faculty and staff to thrive academically and socially.

We are very concerned to hear of any human-rights based discrimination, and encourage our students, faculty and staff to uphold and support our 2SLGBTQIA+ students and communities. UBC is committed to responding to, and addressing, any concerns of human rights-based discrimination. If you are experiencing hate or discrimination, or if you witness discrimination, support is available. Below is a list of available supports and resources at UBC:

Please feel free to share with your staff or students not on this list; this message will be posted shortly on our website and community forum.

Thank you,
