International/Racialized Student Consultation

International and Racialized Student Consultations

In November 2023, two dialogue sessions designed to learn about the lived and living experiences of racialized and international students at all of Memorial's university campuses were conducted by the Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism (EDI-AR) office. These sessions were part of an ongoing consultative process aimed at providing space for interested persons in the university, including students, staff and faculty, to identify strategies, policies and changes that should be implemented to make Memorial University a welcoming and discrimination-free learning, teaching and working environment.

The insights gathered from these dialogue sessions provide important baseline information to guide the EDI-AR portfolio’s interested individuals’ engagement initiatives. They also contribute to shaping university-wide efforts to ensure that Memorial achieves its equity, diversity, inclusion and anti-racism goals, as outlined in its various frameworks and plans.
