Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)


School of Graduate Studies Diversity Dialogue Series for Equity-Seeking Students

We know that everyday equity-seeking students experience a higher degree of socio-economic marginalization. In response, we are hosting an online diversity dialogue series for various equity-seeking graduate students. These dialogues will offer a safe place for you to ask questions and provide feedback on how Memorial University can better support you. If you cannot attend these dialogues or have immediate questions we can help you with, please don’t hesitate to email us at sgs@mun.ca.

Many of our graduate students identify with multiple identities and students are encouraged to attend as many dialogues as they would like to attend to discuss their unique and shared questions and concerns.

Next Event:

Students' lived experience as Black graduate students

The event will entail a conversation with Modeline Longjohn, a PhD student in Biochemistry, and Georginne Worley, a Masters student in Counselling Psychology. The session will be moderated by Dr. Aimée Surprenant, AVPA (Academic) and Dean, SGS. The conversation will include discussion of these student’s lived experiences as Black graduate students as well as discussion of wellness supports. The panelists will also answer questions from attendees. You must register here for the event in order to attend.

We would like to thank Modeline and Georginne for giving of their time to share their stories and look forward to seeing you all at the event.
