About the Census

At Durham College (DC), we are committed to creating an inclusive and respectful campus community where everyone has the tools, resources and opportunities to succeed.

Knowing who our students and employees are allows us to provide meaningful and relevant supports and programs that help our diverse population, remove barriers and inform inclusion and equity initiatives that benefit our community.

To support this work and cultivate an inclusive environment for all members of the college, the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Census will be conducted with students January 23 to February 5, and employees February 13 to February 26.

All full- and part-time students and employees are invited and encouraged to complete the census, which takes less than 10 minutes and is focused on demographic and identity information.

The inaugural survey in 2021 helped formalize an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which has begun to nurture conversations at DC and determine which steps to take as best practises moving forward.
