OCAD University is committed to establishing educational and employment practices that value diversity and equity supported by an environment that is free of discrimination and harassment as defined in the Ontario Human Rights Code. Diversity includes, but is not limited to Francophones, Aboriginals, disabled and persons of different gender, race, religion, age, ethnicity, place of origin, and sexual orientation. OCAD U will strive to eliminate, reduce or mitigate the adverse effects of any barriers to full participation in university life, and ensure that students learn in an inclusive and multicultural setting as set out in the Academic Plan 2011-2016.
Each administrative and academic department at OCAD U will provide a Diversity Action Plan (DAP) for the coming years based on seven key goals developed by the Office for Diversity & Equity Initiatives. These goals govern the framework for implementing diversity and accessibility on campus and are supported with departmental objectives, action strategies and identified constraints and opportunities for obtaining them.
