The Lassonde School of Engineering launched an EDI Sub-Committee with the aim of creating a community where students, faculty, and staff from all walks of life feel welcome and valued. The committee is formed from a diverse group of faculty members, staff and students to ensure that underrepresented groups have a voice in the creation of policies, procedures, and programs to promote inclusivity.
