Funding and supporting Black and Indigenous students in Dalhousie Faculty of Management's programs
Management education plays a vital role in taking great ideas from inspiration to realization. Our students become their generation’s managers and leaders—at home and around the world. They make remarkable contributions in large businesses, in small not-for-profits, in their communities and in government.
Our Promise to support Black and Indigenous students
Through the Promise Scholars program, we will support and nurture students with financial resources, work and internship experiences, and dedicated and personalized academic and career mentoring.
We believe that our collective futures require us to attend to the ways we have excluded and prevented racialized students, and especially Black and Indigenous students, from fulfilling their promise.
