African Nova Scotian Community Engagement Sessions
The engagement sessions
About the sessions
The community engagement session's purpose is to begin an intentional discussion to inform NSCC’s African Nova Scotian Recruitment and Retention Strategy for students and communities. We want to collaborate with communities to gather feedback on the student and community experiences of African Nova Scotians and Persons of African Descent.
The purpose of the community engagement sessions is to:
- Inform the community about NSCC’s programming, services and resources
- Build relationships and trust with the African Nova Scotian community
- Integrate community voices into the decision-making process
- Identify and address any community concerns or issues
- Ensure transparency and accountability in terms of timelines and outcomes
While focusing on the Africentric principle of Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility), this intentional connectivity will allow community members to provide feedback and to assist the college community in disrupting all forms of anti-Black racism in order to nurture Black Inclusion and foster Black Excellence.
The final product of these engagement sessions will guide NSCC’s Anti-Black Racism Strategy and Action Plan.
