The Equity Admissions Self ID Survey Process

Students getting practical experience

PDF fileThe Equity Admissions Self-ID survey is used to promote equitable representations of Indigenous, Black, Persons of Colour (IBPOC) and/or racialized people in the MEP's interviews for admission. It is important to the MEP’s success to work to remove barriers and promote inclusion of people from groups that have been, and continue to be underrepresented in our school and in the profession of midwifery in Ontario. It is the goal of the MEP that, at a minimum, roughly 50% of applicants who are offered interview spots are Indigenous, Black, People of Colour (IBPOC) and/or identify as racialized applicants. The Self-ID survey assists us in this effort and helps us understand more about people who are applying to our program. We hope you will take a couple of minutes to complete it. It takes about 2 minutes.

Privacy and Confidentiality

● The information applicants provide in the Equity Self-ID is voluntary. There is a “prefer not to answer” option to each question.

● Pursuant to Section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the  information on the Equity Admissions Self-ID form is collected under the authority of the Ryerson University Act.

● Only a few people in the Admissions Office and those directly involved in admissions in the MEP will have access to your information. Data from the Equity Self-ID survey may be used to assess program policies and process. In such cases, we will de-identify the data so that it no longer identifies you.
