Did you know that U of T has over 120 courses dedicated to equity?
Through networking with related course unions on campus, VP Equity Alex McLean and a team of dedicated UTSU staff compiled a list of equity related courses for the new Advancing Equity in Education guide.
“To raise awareness of equity-based courses at U of T, it is imperative that we educate ourselves on the multiple interconnecting facets of equity and social justice and their ongoing implications in today’s society,” said UTSU VP Equity Alex McLean. “Colonialism is deeply ingrained within our academic institutions, and it is imperative that we increase awareness of programs that focus on decolonization and equity studies. It is crucial that all students are aware of social and historical underpinnings of equity and social justice issues to develop strategies for advancing social change on a local, national, and global scale.”
From ‘Queer Pop Culture’ to ‘Caribbean Foodways Across History, Culture and Diaspora’ and from ‘Theorizing Settler Colonialism, Capitalism and Race’ to ‘Indigenous Narratives of Empowerment’ U of T students have remarkable opportunities to learn about equity and educate themselves along a pathway to a more inclusive and just society.
“Equity is integral to our every day lives,” McLean said. “No matter the career we choose, we must always work towards creating spaces that are inclusive and accessible of all individuals.”
