Black Scholars Club

The Black Canadas Scholars is a mentoring, advocacy, and empowerment group for Black students. It is one part learning, one part support, and one part leadership. The group engages explorations in Canada’s Black history, offers a space for questions and support, and encourages members to take their knowledge and experience out into the wider world to provide a voice for marginalized groups/people where necessary. 


Academic institutions are not always welcoming spaces for Black students because society has stereotyped Blackness as lacking intellectual or academic ability. The purpose of the group is to provide Black students with the strong sense that they, too, belong here. 

This group meets monthly on the first Tuesday or Thursday. 

To join, contact Bertrand Bickersteth, Communications Instructor.
