Racialized Graduate Student Resources

Graduate students who identify as Indigenous, Black, Brown, Asian or Students of Colour meet regularly with the Associate Dean of Graduate Programs and Research to discuss and disrupt systemic racism and the way everyday racism impacts graduate students lives. The resources on this page have been gathered and created to support racialized students as they navigate their graduate studies in the Faculty of Education, University of Regina.
