Athabasca University’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan outlines its commitment to research excellence and to sustaining participation of individuals from the four designated groups (i.e., women, persons with disabilities, Aboriginal Peoples and members of visible minorities) in its Canada Research Chair complement. The plan is based on the premise that sound equity practices afford access to all qualified candidates, uphold the integrity of the selection, nomination and appointment process, and support research excellence and training.
Athabasca University gratefully acknowledges the financial contribution of the federal government's Research Support Fund (formerly the Indirect Cost Program), which helps to offset the costs associated with administering Tri-Agency grants and awards.
How the RSF funding will be utilized each year is outlined in the documents below:
