The Faculty of Arts and Science is a scholarly community built upon freedom of inquiry and expression and the equality and dignity of all persons. As Dean, I wish to emphasize our commitment to diversity and inclusion and to assert the importance of non-discriminatory treatment on the basis of gender identity and gender expression. We acknowledge and value equity-seeking members of our community and strive to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all our students, staff and faculty.

Sincerely,
Barbara Crow, PhD
Dean, Faculty of Arts and Science
