Black Student Advising

 

The mandate of the Black Student Advisor’s Office is to promote the awareness of the need for increased access, recruitment and retention of indigenous Black students, while encouraging education equity for all within the university environment. We assist Blacks students in making the transition and adjustment to the challenges of University life while creating an awareness and appreciation of African Canadian culture and history in the greater campus community.
 
We also:
·    
  • Advise black students so as to help them be successful both academically and socially
  • Act as an advocate for Black students on such matters of discrimination and harassment
  • To assist and support new, prospective and returning students of African descent
  • Act as a liaison between the University and various stakeholders invested in the advancement of black learners

StFX has a number of student societies interested in raising cultural awareness. The Believers and Leaders for Arfri-Canadian students (BLAC Student Society) is a group open to all students who are interested in learning more about black culture and creating opportunities to increase accessibility to post-secondary education for African Nova Scotian students. The BLAC Student society plans and organize several events each year including, Afric-Carabanza, Kwanzaa, Run against Racism and African Heritage Month, as well as collaborating with other student societies on various other events.
