Last November, UBC joined over 50 other universities and colleges across Canada and signed the Scarborough Charter – a historic pledge to fight anti-Black racism and promote Black inclusion in higher education.
The principles, actions, and commitments outlined in the Charter reflect the signatories’ collective recognition of the realities of anti-Black racism, encapsulate our shared aspirations to address them, and provide a concrete framework for delivering on our promise.
On May 13 and 14, UBC will host the inaugural Inter-Institutional Forum of the Scarborough National Charter on Anti-Black Racism and Black Inclusion in Canadian Higher Education and bring together four panels of administrators, faculty, advisors, students, and community activists for discussion.
The event is an opportunity to engage with experts, thought leaders and activists on pathways for action on addressing anti-Black racism and promoting Black representation and flourishing in academia.
