Message from the AVP, Interim

Welcome to the UBC Equity & Inclusion Office website. As Interim Associate Vice-President, it is my pleasure to join this team in their commitment to lead, support, partner and educate as appropriate around equity, inclusion and diversity matters including human rights. As an Indigenous woman, and scholar I have spent years focusing on equity, inclusion and diversity in academia, legislation and healthcare spaces. Our office is here for students, staff, faculty and others involved in campus life at both Vancouver and Okanagan Campuses.

Campus and community diversity in all its constructs is to be respected; inclusion requires intentional individual and institutional effort; and equity is the result of this respect and intention. Some of the initiatives spearheaded in the office are the Inclusion Action Plan and anticipating the launch and work of the Anti-Racism and Inclusive Excellence Report.

Please familiarize yourself with our site where you can find helpful tools and contacts.

Thank you

Margaret P. Moss, PhD, JD, RN, FAAN
