Equity, diversity and inclusion

Memorial University’s current search for a vice-provost, (equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI)) points to the university’s growing attention to equity.

Dr. Jennifer S. Simpson, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and Dr. Sulaimon Giwa, Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work with a cross-posting to the Department of Sociology, recently contributed an op-ed on EDI to The Gazette.

As a faculty member and administrator, they hope that their article deepens understandings of and offers a shared language for EDI at Memorial University.
