Welcome to York University Black Staff Network (YUBSN)

Governed by an elected executive committee, the York University Black Staff Network (YUBSN) serves as a place of engagement, support and community for Black identifying non-academic staff at the University.  This network is comprised entirely of non-academic employees who self-identify as Black – this includes all non-academic staff from across all employee groups and/or bargaining units spanning all York University campuses including the York U - TD Community Engagement Centre. All members of the YUBSN play an integral role in the effective functioning of the University and the achievement of its goals. The network will facilitate opportunities for networking, professional development and overall advancement of Black employees so that they can find their fit at York.
