Steering Committee


The Steering Committee is made up of a group of volunteers. We're a working group that, among other things, plans the Annual General Meetings, schedules training and workshops on campus, serves as spokespersons at campus events, takes an interest in Orientation Week activities, and facilitates communication with Allies.

Our mission iis to support the Rainbow students, staff, and faculty at Dalhousie by creating a community that welcomes and respects their diversity. A listing of the expectations of the Committee is available by clicking here.

We:

  • provide ongoing education of group members
