Respect at ULethbridge

Here, at ULethbridge, we recognize that our people are our greatest strength. As an institution and a campus community, it is vital that we put in the work to maintain that strength and to further invest in our people, and specifically, in the environment in which the members of our campus community work, study, and thrive. As part of our university’s commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging, as well as an ongoing investment in the value each and every one brings to our campus, we are proud to announce the launch of the Respect at ULethbridge program.

We have heard your perspectives, and we want to respond in a meaningful way.

Respect at ULethbridge is an ongoing, long-term initiative and will include many steps along the way as we come together to begin our journey to fostering a better place to work, learn, and thrive. Respect at ULethbridge is also our commitment to fostering safe and inclusive spaces of belonging for all our community no matter their background, experiences, or stories.

We welcome everyone on this journey, one that we will take together, to further our learning, foster empathy, and better understand each of our roles in supporting a campus community that is welcoming to all. We are all human beings – we will all make mistakes – and at times we can make assumptions about others that can be harmful. It is an opportunity for all of us to live the values of respect and be the example of what we want to see.

We encourage all our students, staff, and faculty to join us in working towards building a better today and brighter future at the University of Lethbridge.
