Student Equity and Support Programs Division

Student equity is the center of our work.

All students are on a personal, academic and professional journey, however, not every student begins at the same place, with the same tools and experiences.

This is where the notion of Equity rises to the surface. Equality is supporting everyone the same way while Equity is providing support based on the context and needs of each individual.

The Office of Student Equity and Support Programs (SESP) develops, facilitates and supports initiatives that address Student Equity inside and outside the classroom.
