Exploring Supports for Indigenous and Black Students as Global Leaders

To be inclusive of students from marginalized Mi’kmaw and African Nova Scotians communities, this project is seeking to increase academic programs focused on Black and African Diaspora Studies and Indigenous Studies. These programs, transitioning from Minor to Major present an opportunity to explore the potential relevance and value of mobility for indigenous and black students in building and integrating appropriately informed programs to support emerging global leaders. Through surveys with students, community engagement sessions, discussions with the Indigenous Advisory Council, panel discussions with Indigenous and Black/ African campus communities and staff, Dalhousie university was able to create a final report that will be disseminated to the broader university community including senior leaders through continued mobility development forums within the institution.
