The 2024 Inter-Institutional Forum of the Scarborough Charter

May 9th & 10th 2024

The University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University will be hosting the 2024 Inter-Institutional Forum of the Scarborough Charter on Anti-Black Racism and Black Inclusion in Canadian Higher Education.

Bridging Black: Building Connections for Black Flourishing

For the 2024 Scarborough Charter Inter-Institutional Forum, we have chosen the theme - Bridging Black. Our intention is to bridge the gaps in both learning and action and to build better connections between the different stakeholders at higher education institutions - senior administration, faculty, staff, students, and neighbouring Black communities.

Programming of the forum is built to prioritize, share, and legitimize the experiences and knowledges of Black people participating in the institution as well as the knowledges that have historically contributed to the flourishing of the academy. We hope that by providing the room for intentional idea exchange around the principles of the Scarborough Charter, leaders and participants can leave with more tools and reinvigorated spirits to follow through on redressing anti-Blackness in higher education.

Book your room at the Delta Waterloo

For those who will be travelling to the forum, a block of rooms at a discounted rate has been held at the Delta Waterloo.
