Community forum on anti-racism

On Friday, June 26, UCC invites all alumni, parents, students, and colleagues to participate in a community-wide dialogue on anti-racism. The discussion will be led and facilitated by equity issues expert Dr. Notisha Massaquoi and include members of the College’s leadership team. This forum aims to have open and honest dialogue and consider how we actively create a learning environment that reflects true inclusion and fosters empathy, compassion and justice-mindedness in our students and across our community.
