Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Faculty of Dentistry strives to be a welcoming and friendly community!

Our efforts toward Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) enhance and connect our community with information and initiatives related to anti-racism, anti-homophobia and anti-discrimination within the Faculty and across UBC.

The Faculty of Dentistry hopes to improve our culture, overcome past failures, and fight racism and discrimination broadly. We are committed to expanding diversity and inclusion within our various programs and faculty, staff and student cohorts.

The DEI Office liaises with program directors and students to develop and improve curriculum content related to DEI, ensures Dentistry is in alignment with UBC initiatives and develops surveys for faculty, staff and students to have input into our culture, priorities and programming.
