Black scholars are among the most underrepresented in postdoctoral positions, tenured faculty positions, and in University leadership. Building on the recommendations of the Anti-Black Racism Campus Climate Review and reinforced by the PDF fileStanding Strong committee recommendations, and as part of a wider commitment to equity, in recognition of the barriers to equal opportunities for education and employment, TMU is implementing this program with the goals of building a more diverse and inclusive academe, and supporting the flourishing of Black scholarship. In particular, this program seeks to expand and advance Black scholarship and intellectual traditions, and support the academic endeavours of the Black community.
