BIPOC Graduate Student Mentoring Academy

A platform for BIPOC community success

Beginning in January 2022, the Faculty of Graduate Studies will host a new mentoring program to support the professional development of our BIPOC graduate students. Initiated by a cross-disciplinary executive team consisting of faculty, staff and students, the program addresses barriers due to systemic racism that limit students from reaching their full potential. It will offer professional development events dedicated to supporting the aspirations of BIPOC graduate students and will play a central role connecting graduate students of colour with mentors of colour.

Getting started

We look forward to sharing plans for programming which are expected to begin in the Winter 2022 term. If you have any questions, suggestions or opportunities for the BIPOC Mentoring Academy Executive Team to consider, please email
