  • organizing events to help students build support and friendship in their community
  • executing campaigns to raise awareness of issues facing their group
  • facilitating discussions and seminars on important issues in the community
  • finding ways to break down stigma in the broader society
  • improving accessibility for students to resources, programs and events on and off campus

COLLECTIVE SUMMARY

WHO WE ARE

The Black students collective is made of up Black students studying at Capilano University. We seek to foster community and create a safer space for Black students on campus and beyond. Membership in this collective is limited to self-identifying members only.

WHAT WE DO

The collective meets to discuss issues, plan events and workshops, and offer resources to Black students at Capilano University. The collective was established in 2021, but past events organized by the Capilano Students’ Union to focus on and celebrate Black culture and representation include the Black History Month Cabaret, a live discussion with Grammy-nominated Black American jazz singer Jazzmeia Horn, and workshops on topics such as Ethiopian cooking and Black hair.
