Respectful University Environment and Educational Equity

The department  is  committed  to  promoting the principles described in the UBC Statement on Respectful Environment:

The University of British Columbia envisions a climate in which students, faculty and staff are provided with the best possible conditions for learning, researching and working, including an environment that is dedicated to excellence, equity and mutual respect. The University of British Columbia strives to realize this vision by establishing employment and educational practices that respect the dignity of individuals and make it possible for everyone to live, work, and study in a positive and supportive environment, free from harmful behaviours such as bullying and harassment.

Evaluation of students’ performance on written and oral assignments and examinations should be based solely on students’ performance and academic potential.
