UBC Discrimination & Conflict Advising

The Equity and Inclusion Office provides discrimination and conflict advising by appointment. Though general in their mission statement, this office offers specific advising on issues regarding human-rights based discrimination and harassment experienced by students, faculty or staff. In these sessions, clients will learn about possible strategies for addressing discrimination as well as external resources.

How to access Discrimination & Conflict Advising:

To get an appointment, fill out the pre-appointment form on their website.

After filling out the form, contact them to book an appointment by email (humanrights@equity.ubc.ca) or phone (604–822–0309)

What happens when I book an appointment?

The first appointment will be a 30 minute consultation with the office's Director of Human Rights. In that appointment, they will get information about your situation and discuss next steps.

This initiative is run by botany and zoology grad students and faculty with the goal of providing better mental health support to grad students. We host stress-relieving events, wellness workshops, provide access to teaching faculty mentors, and advocate for your mental wellness to the departments. Find out more here.
