Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI)

St. Andrew’s College offers theological education to embody compassion, hope, and justice. Our engagement with justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion comes out of this commitment.

In 2020, a small group including faculty, staff and alum got together to work on revamping our policy on justice and to establish a justice committee and program. Building on prior work on gender inclusion, the new policy on justice “describes how the College will continually engage in education and action toward justice in all of its own practices.” It continues as follows:  “the policy covers all aspects of college life and provides direction to all groups and individuals acting in or on behalf of the College. At St. Andrew’s College, we celebrate the image of God in all peoples, all cultures and in all creation.  Our commitment to justice flows out of this celebration of the divine intent for diversity and abundant life and aligns with commitments of The United Church of Canada.“

Our Justice Committee is working hard to enliven the life of St. Andrew’s College with education and advocacy. If you’re interested in finding out more or being involved, please be in touch with us at: [email protected].
