About the Black Male Initiative
Of the Canadian provinces, British Columbia has the lowest representation of the Black population in Canada, and it is often difficult for Black male students in particular to access the support they need.
The Black Male Initiative is designed to support UBC male students who self-identify as Black. It provides a confidential space on campus for members to connect to other Black male students, where they can share their lived experiences with one another and receive both peer and mentor support.
The program strives to support all Black male students during their time at UBC with the following:
- Regular gatherings for authentic group conversations
- Social events/ speakers
- Mentorship opportunities
- Networking/Community building
- Safe space for Black male students only
