A brief description of notable policies or programs to support non-traditional students:

Since 2018, the Université de Sherbrooke developed a support program for the introduction of the Inclusive Pedagogical Approach. This program aims to make teaching more inclusive and adapted to the student clientele, which includes, among others, low-income students and/or students from underrepresented groups (e.g., women, First Peoples, visible minorities, people with disabilities, ethnic minorities, people from sexual and gender diversity). The program has the following five objectives:

• Developing and testing inclusive and diverse learning and learning assessment process
• Promoting student motivation and success
• Promoting the inclusion of everyone by better responding to individual needs
• Reducing the stigmatization towards returning students, international students, and emerging clientele
• Implementing a more inclusive approach to teaching and assessing learning in order to reduce the need for piecemeal accommodations
