Law - Educational Equity Committee's Suggestion Box

News

Published: 9 Dec 2010

The Educational Equity Committee (EEC) is comprised of faculty administrative officers, professors and students. Its mandate is to help foster an environment in the Faculty which is inclusive of diverse identities, experiences and capacities. As part of its mandate, the EEC would like to inform students of institutional processes through which they can voice concerns about issues related to diversity and equity in the Faculty.

With the Suggestion Box initiative, the EEC hopes to provide an additional avenue for students to participate in a constructive dialogue about these issues. All respectful comments are highly valued and encouraged.

Students may convey diversity and equity related concerns or suggestions in person, by email or by telephone to Me Aisha Topsakal, Assistant Dean (Student Life and Learning), or they may deposit a message in the Suggestion Box located at the Student Affairs Office (SAO) counter.
