Why is diversity so important at George Brown College?

Welcome to Diversity, Equity and Human Rights Services

George Brown College has a rich and accomplished history in matters related to diversity, equity and safety. The position of Human Rights Advisor to the President was created in 1991 as a result of work done by the College and the community on the development of the Race and Ethnic Relations Policy.

Diversity, Equity and Human Rights Services is dedicated to student and staff success by fostering a respectful learning and working environment at George Brown College.

We do this by:


We provide advice and information regarding:

  • Human Rights
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Diversity Awareness
  • Conflict Resolution


Our goal is to engage in proactive education with students and staff on diversity, equity and human rights. We provide college-wide education in various formats including:

  • In-person consultation
  • In-class training workshops
  • Guest speakers/performers
  • Promotional initiatives


We initiate and support positive change through policy development and college committee work.

All our services are confidential.

Diversity, Equity & Human Rights Services encourages all George Brown community members (including Alumni) to visit our offices at Casa Loma, St. James or Waterfront campuses.

Announcement: Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence Policy and Protocol

George Brown College values respect for all individuals: civility, diversity, dignity, equality and freedom. We are committed to maintaining a healthy and safe learning, living, social, recreational and working environment. This means maintaining a campus free of discrimination and harassment, and striving to foster an atmosphere of healthy attitudes and behaviours towards sexuality, sex and gender roles.

We will not tolerate behaviour that contributes to a hostile and inequitable learning and working environment. We take seriously our commitment to supporting those who experience sexual violence and we work diligently on campus and with community partners on programs, policies and resources to ensure that our campus remains free from sexual violence.

This webpage provides quick access to the information contained in the George Brown College Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence Policy and Protocol. It provides procedures and resources to support individuals and groups who may be directly or indirectly impacted by sexual violence or involved in working with persons who have experienced it.

I urge all members of the College community to review the Policy and Protocol to learn about options and resources available to those who require support or who wish to support others. Please help to ensure that the College remains a safe and positive space where members of the College community feel able to work, learn and express themselves in a safe environment that upholds human equality.

Please Note: This framework has been approved by the Committee of Presidents of the 24 publicly-funded colleges in Ontario. In approving this template, the presidents recognize that individual colleges may need to make changes to reflect local circumstances during the development of their stand-alone sexual violence and sexual assault policy and protocol. In doing so, the colleges have committed to retaining as much consistency with the template as possible to reflect a similar style, tone, and format that will help students and others easily access information they need no matter which college they approach. For more information, view the FAQ.
