The Elders’ Circle project strives to connect students with elders from their local community and context. This project coordinated by MSVU’s Black Student Support Office (BSSO) will host a different elder each month. With a commitment to empowering Black MSVU students, the Elders’ Circle will also expose others to the shared knowledge and experiences of African diasporic communities worldwide. This proposed initiative coincides with our goals of providing holistic support for all Black students at MSVU while affirming that community matters at MSVU.
Through the Elders’ Circle, the BSSO aims to bridge the common intergenerational knowledge gap within the Black community by bringing the knowledge directly to the MSVU campus. All are welcome to attend the monthly sessions whether in-person or online.
The coordinators of this project are Randy Headley and Lilian Fernandes from the Black Student Support Office and Alexia Major from the Centre for Academic Advising & Student Success. This team aims to bridge the intergenerational knowledge gap commonly observed within the Black community by bringing the knowledge directly to the MSVU campus.
