Human Rights

February is Black History Month   |   Details

At MacEwan University, we welcome everyone. We respect human rights, celebrate diversity and embrace equity and inclusion. We build human rights champions who influence our community both within and beyond the university's walls.

The Office of Human Rights, Diversity and Equity works with the entire MacEwan community to build a campus that is free from discrimination. We can answer your questions about human rights policies and support your ideas for initiatives that promote diversity. If you have experienced discrimination on campus, we can guide and support you.

Black History Month

African drumming workshops, film screenings, discussions and an evening of spoken word—these are some of the events you can participate in during Black History Month. Celebrate the contributions made by Black Canadians to Canada’s culture and legacy.

A month of planning

The organizing committee for MacEwan University's inaugural Black History Month (BHM) included students, faculty and staff. "We are an open space not only for the outside community, but for the community within," says committee member Valerie Ouedraogo.
