Mission Statement / Mandate
The Society of Graduate Student’s Equity Committee advocates equality, and assists graduate students experiencing inequality at the University of Western Ontario.
The SOGS equity committee is currently (1) developing a map of equity and diversity services at UWO for graduate students, (2) collaborating with the Canadian Federation of Students to host a racism awareness event and (3) building a knowledge partnership with other equity-related committees, councils and campus services to keep graduate students informed and up-to-date on current issues and events. We continue to work to promote equity, and improve the graduate student experience at UWO.
