Completed Research Projects
|Black Child and Youth Studies Network|
This is a provincial multi-disciplinary, multi-institution research network that aims to help address issues of inequity and racism experienced by Black children and youth in systems of education and healthcare.
|Financial Awards and Black Students’ Persistence in PSE|
“Are scholarships enough?” This project explores the impact of financial awards on Black students’ access to, persistence in, and completion of post-secondary education in Ontario. What we learn from this project will help us construct a useful understanding of how we can improve the outcomes for Black students in post-secondary, and other educational, institutions.
|We Rise Together |

The research initiative is part of the school board’s We Rise Together Action Plan to address antiBlack racism and the low achievement gap among its Black students. Please see final report here.
