The knowledge that all people deserve respect, dignity and fairness is at the heart of everything we do at UVic. Our researchers and artists advance this fundamental value in a variety of ways.
We connect across academic and community boundaries to examine ethics, politics, culture, and historical and current wrongs. We identify how to stop unjust practices, prevent recurrences, redress and heal. We recognize that we must continue this work until inequity is eliminated on our campus and around the world.

The Diploma in Intercultural Studies and Practice (ISP) prepares students to play a productive and socially responsible role in an increasingly multicultural and diverse world. The program aims to develop social responsibility and a clearer understanding and awareness of the complex issues at play in a multicultural society.
The aim of the Social Justice Studies (SJS) diploma program is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the range of ways in which scholars, researchers and students address and engage with issues surrounding social inequities and injustices in the contemporary world.
