U of T, STU, UNB, UoGuelph launch anti-racism and education initiatives

February 4, 2021
The University of Toronto, St Thomas University, the University of New Brunswick, and the University of Guelph have announced partnerships that are focused on anti-racism and education initiatives. UNB and STU have partnered with Black Lives Matter Fredericton to launch the Black Lives Matter in New Brunswick Education Project database that will help educators teach about Black history in NB schools. The material can be integrated into social studies curriculum and will give teachers curriculum, lesson plans, and resources to present Black history knowledge to their students. U of T researchers have partnered with Ontario University Athletics to complete a study on anti-racism. The study focuses on a variety of topics, including racial demographics, the perceptions of the sport community, the role of postsecondary institutions, and anti-racism in postsecondary settings. At UoGuelph, Black veterinary students have launched Canadian VIBE, a national non-profit organization for fostering diversity in veterinary medicine. U of T | CBC (STU and UNB) | UoGuelph (National)
