Human Rights

At MacEwan University, we welcome everyone. We respect human rights, celebrate diversity and embrace equity and inclusion. We build human rights champions who influence our community both within and beyond the university's walls.

The Office of Human Rights, Diversity and Equity works with the entire MacEwan community to build a campus that is free from discrimination. We can answer your questions about human rights policies and support your ideas for initiatives that promote diversity. If you have experienced discrimination on campus, we can guide and support you.

Combat hate

In an editorial for CBC, Irfan Chaudhry, director of OHRDE, asked “Can we all just get along?” He shared three suggestions for what we can all do to combat hate.

Support for good ideas

Christine Feron, a fourth-year psychology student, wanted to help MacEwan students who are parents of young children to access supports. Assistance from The Equity Project allowed her to gather and distribute that information in a single handy resource.
