Cultural Diversity

The Cultural Diversity team in Student Experience plays a critical role in providing support to Black and racialized students at the University of Guelph. We aim to foster a supportive, affirming and inclusive campus for students through programming where students can learn about themselves and others, creating spaces for cultural celebration, advocacy and exploring social justice through a diversity and inclusion lens including:

  • Advising and counselling through our Cultural Diversity Advisor
  • Semester and yearlong mentorship, engagement, and transition programs
  • Skill-building workshops and training
  • Community-building and social events

Cultural Diversity Advising

The Cultural Diversity Advisor provides advising and support for students who are Black and racialized. An Advisor is a staff member who provides information about the many supports and resources available to students at U of G. An Advisor can guide and assist you in navigating the university system, explaining and clarifying institutional policies, describing the overarching expectations of students, and facilitating connections with other campus or community supports, resources or services.


Programs, Events & Opportunities

We offer intentionally designed programming, events, and environments for students to engage in meaningful cultural dialogue, learn to navigate complex environments and expand the understanding of racial and ethnic diversity on campus through a social justice lens. Our program offerings include the CORE Mentorship Program, Black History Month programming, frequent guest speakers, networking events, and more!
