Faculty of Education’s diversity policy garners local media attention
The Faculty of Education’s newly approved Diversity Admissions Policy, which would allow for 45 per cent of applicants to the B.Ed. program to be from self-identified diversity categories, has sparked numerous media reports.
The goal of the policy, which has 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.”
Here are some of the media reports:
