Be a champion of diversity and equity. Build a campus community that is free from discrimination. By participating in leadership initiatives, awareness campaigns and open dialogue sessions, you learn to influence your community, both within and beyond the university's walls.
Offered by the Office of Human Rights, Diversity, and Equity together with the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights, Champions of Diversity and Equity (C.O.D.E.) is a 12-week training initiative that focuses on creating a space and culture for dialogue, learning, reflection and action on human rights.
When you participate in C.O.D.E. training, you explore the theory and practice of human rights. You gain skills in facilitating dialogue and conversations on critical human rights issues. You deepen your understanding and practice of allyship, solidarity and witnessing as basic tools to claim human rights and develop skills to become educators and advocates on human rights issues.
C.O.D.E. training is open to all current MacEwan students: full and part-time, International and exchange, continuing education, English as an additional language and university preparation. Contact us for more information and to apply.
Our volunteers donate 20 to 30 hours/semester by participating in presentations, organizing awareness events, leading peer dialogue sessions and supporting campus and community outreach initiatives. When you volunteer with the Office of Human Rights, Diversity and Equity, the personal and professional skills you develop become part of the co-curricular record.
