Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The UBC Department of Linguistics envisions a supportive place of learning and teaching sustained by a diverse collaborative community of faculty, staff, and students. We aim to advance equity and inclusion by supporting and nurturing a culture of self-reflection and improvement in our classroom practices, workplace culture, research foci, and overall well-being of the individuals in our community.

We strive to prioritize teaching and research that advances the field of linguistics by being inclusive of diverse languages, speakers, and scholars. In the department’s work to support minoritized and marginalized language communities, the department commits to engaging with language communities in a manner that respects and centers the communities.
