The Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education (KPE) strives to create and maintain a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for all students and members in all our facilities – one that is aligned with University policies, guidelines and statements on equity, diversity and excellence. To this end, the Faculty has made a systemic commitment to equity through a variety of targeted strategies and initiatives.

The U of T Sport & Rec Diversity & Equity Team, was formed by the Faculty to provide an opportunity for student leaders to collaborate and receive mentoring from staff for various equity initiatives, in support of the Faculty’s goals of diversity and equity within physical activity/health. The Diversity & Equity Team welcomes the opportunity for students from all three campuses to initiate, develop and propose an initiative in the form of an event and/or project, which meets and advances the Faculty’s equity goals and aspirations. Proposed initiatives must be related to diversity and equity, as well as physical and/or mental health and wellness. The proposal will be reviewed, and if approved, funding up to $500 can be secured through the Equity Ideas Fund.
