The EIO has a broad mandate to work with campus and community partners: to proactively identify and address campus-wide systemic equity and inclusion issues; to play a central role in campus advising, awareness-raising, education and training on accessibility, equity and inclusion; and to support the development and implementation of policies and practices for effective, timely and procedurally fair response and resolution to incidents of harassment, discrimination, and sexual violence, including investigative services. The EIO promotes and supports institution-wide commitments to equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility, and principles of inclusive excellence, to foster a campus culture and community that respect the human rights, integrity and dignity of all community members.
