Faculty of Education - Diversity Admissions Policy

The University of Manitoba Senate approved the Faculty of Education's Diversity Admissions Policy in February, 2016. The goal of the policy, which had been in development since 2012, is to ensure that graduates of the U of M education program help to create a more diverse teaching force in the province, representing the “cultural, ethnic, regional and social diversity of Manitoba.”

For more information on the policy, please see the links below.
