Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Human Rights

During these uncertain times, it is more important now than ever before that we come together and support each other. The Office of Diversity & Human Rights at the University of Guelph is pleased to share with you an equity, diversity, and inclusion focused handbook to help our community navigate through this COVID-19 pandemic.

 The handbook entitledFostering a Sense of Belonging in Times of Crisis and Challenge: An Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Handbook for Individuals & Organizations During COVID-19, is available now on our website and has tips and resources on how to be a strong ally, how to deal with stigma, how to support those facing mental health challenges and how to be an inclusive leader.

The Office of Diversity and Human Rights (DHR)  helps coordinate, evaluate, and report on the University's institutional equity and inclusion activities; and promotes the fundamental rights and responsibilities guaranteed by Ontario's Human Rights (Code) 

We work with senior administrators, and other persons in positions of power, trust, and authority to identify and resolve questions, concerns, and complaints about individual courses of conduct, or the application of any University policy or procedure that may discriminate against persons protected by the Code.
