The Elders’ Circle project connects all MSVU students with Elders from the African Nova Scotian community. This project is coordinated by the Black Student Support Office (BSSO), who will host Elders for monthly discussions. With a commitment to empowering Black students, the Elders’ Circle will also expose others to the shared knowledge and experiences of the African diasporic communities worldwide. This 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 intergenerational knowledge gap within the Black community by bringing Elders directly to our 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 Faculty of Education.
