A Welcoming Place for All

Vancouver Island University is committed to building and sustaining a diverse and inclusive working and learning environment for faculty, staff, and students. At VIU, we believe having employees who reflect the diversity of our students, and our community makes us a better university. 

Diversity is vital for communities to flourish, to be at their healthiest and most successful. People from different backgrounds and identities bring unique perspectives, talents, and ways of knowing that benefit all of us. In our journey towards greater diversity, we invite applications from members of equity-seeking communities including women, racialized and Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, persons of all gender identities and sexual orientations who bring value to the VIU community through their lived experiences.
