Our DEI Team

The UBC Faculty of Dentistry launched the DEI Advisory Committee in January 2021 to work toward an inclusive, diverse, friendly, and respectful culture and values for our  staff, students, faculty and patients. Since then, we have been working collaboratively with our DEI subcommittees of students, staff and faculty reps to collectively share our voices.
