Racialized Student Collective

The Racialized Students’ Collective is an Equity Service Centre which seeks to combat racism and colonialism with and for Racialized, Black and Indigenous students. The RSC is both a group and a physical space that serves to provide a safer space for  Black, Indigenous and racialized students on campus.
