Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at Schulich


Dr. Svetlana Yanushkevich

At Schulich School of Engineering, diversity is an integral part of our culture and our faculty’s history. In engineering, diversity is essential for innovation. We strive to create an inclusive and equitable environment where students, faculty and staff of all backgrounds can collaboratively learn, create and serve.
