Seneca’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Commitment

Together we come as one to Seneca’s EDI Commitment. We acknowledge that our campuses are built on the traditional territories of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinaabe Nation, Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Williams Treaty; who continue to live, work and play on these lands today. We believe that truth, reconciliation and Indigenous sovereignty are fundamental to an equitable and just Canada; and that Seneca has a role to play in fulfilling these requirements. We acknowledge that structural barriers impact equity-deserving communities, which are upheld by both individual and systemic biases, including anti-Black racism.

Seneca takes pride in the vibrant and diverse community we serve and recognizes that a culture of equity, inclusion and diversity must be based on an understanding of the whole person that values all of our differences. We commit to critically analyzing, identifying, and dismantling the barriers to access, student success, and employee potential. We will be accountable for these changes by evaluating effectiveness, tracking progress, analyzing best practices, determining and implementing next steps. The Seneca community is responsible for living these values, and it is a particular focus of our leadership team, who will model continued commitment to an equitable Seneca.
