National agreement encourages wider range of perspectives and experiences in post-secondary institutions.
The president of the University of Alberta joined the federal minister of science and sport Monday to sign a new charter focusing on inclusion and diversity in Canadian post-secondary institutions.
David H. Turpin joined Minister Kirsty Duncan in a signing ceremony to endorse The Dimensions Charter, which commits institutions to embed equity, diversity and inclusiveness in the institution. In May, the U of A became one of the first post-secondary institutions to publicly support the charter, just one day after Duncan unveiled the agreement.
