Empowering Black Students

At Mount Saint Vincent University, we want you to always feel connected and comfortable. While our overall campus atmosphere is already welcoming, friendly and diverse, the aim of Black Student Support Office is to complement this atmosphere by connecting African Nova Scotian/Black students with individuals who share similar values, culture, background and experiences. 

Whether you are a Black Canadian, African Nova Scotian, or an international student, there will likely be times that you need support at the Mount. Our Black Student Support Coordinator is here to help.
