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 staff who self-identify as Black – this includes all non-academic staff spanning all employee groups and/or bargaining units across all campuses including the York U - TD Community Engagement Centre. 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 voice at York.

YUBSN members are strongly encouraged to participate in the network's activities as it is a great way to engage with each and the wider York community. 

Visit our site regularly for news and updates on YUBSN events and initiatives being undertaken by the committees and for information on how you can engage and connect with Black staff colleagues across our campuses.

Thank you for visiting us and we look forward to seeing you at our next gathering!
