SGS Initiatives & Resources
With more than 20,000 graduate students from a range of research-stream and professional programs across three campuses, our community is diverse in many ways including age, citizenship, family status, ethnicity, culture, ability and disability, economic and social capital, gender identity, sexual orientation, and mental and physical health.
Our goal is to build equity, diversity, and inclusion into all we do—both in how we provide it and what we do—so everyone who engages with SGS feels respected, supported, and able to thrive.
