Human Rights and Equity

We are a resource for all Brock community members to provide information, education, assistance, and advice issues related to human rights harassment and discrimination.

This includes harassment and discrimination on the basis of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, ancestry, creed, sex, gender identification, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status, receipt of public assistance (in housing), record of offences (in employment) and disability, as well as personal or workplace harassment.

Human Rights and Equity works with many other departments and services on campus to prevent harassment and discrimination from occurring and to quickly address incidents as they arise. We assist community members with issues of harassment and discrimination and help guide them to understand the range of options available to resolve the situation.

Our Vision

To promote an environment at Brock University that is inclusive, celebrates diversity, and does not tolerate, condone, or ignore human rights harassment or discrimination.

Our Mission

  • Promote inclusivity and prevent harassment and discrimination through increased awareness, education, and training for all Brock community members
  • Provide the university community with a central resource for assistance in addressing issues of harassment and discrimination
  • Increase coordination and cooperation between university departments and services to promote inclusion and accessibility
  • Administer the Respectful Work and Learning Environment Policy and other human rights related policies to address issues of harassment and discrimination on campus

News and Events


The Equity in Post-Secondary Speakers Series features guest lecturers who inspire solutions to prioritize inclusion on university campuses.  All events are free and open to the public.  Refreshments are provided.  We hope that you can join us for one or all of these conversations.
