USask releases SHRC review of inequity in College of Medicine


The University of Saskatchewan’s College of Medicine has released the findings of the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission’s (SHRC) review of systemic inequity in the faculty. The report summarizes the SHRC’s investigation and findings and identifies opportunities for improvement in several areas, including strengthening the student complaint process, strengthening the work culture, and improving the diversity of the faculty. “In my messaging internally … I’ve been emphasizing the fact that there is information in this report that is distressing,” said USask Medicine Dean Preston Smith. “Even more distressing to me was looking around the world and knowing this was happening, and not knowing how much was happening in my own college.” USask notes that it has already begun to take action to improve its equity, diversity, and inclusion.
