All students, alumni, faculty and staff in the Faculty of Education were invited to participate in an online survey to share their experiences, perspectives and suggestions related to race, Indigeneity and social justice across several themes. The survey was active from March 5 through April 11 2021. Responses will remain confidential and anonymous, and they will help inform our recommendations for the Faculty of Education to create meaningful impact for racialized and Indigenous peoples in the Faculty.

In our next steps, we are engaging in focus group discussions and interviews with students, alumni, staff and faculty. If you are interested in participating in a focus group discussion or an interview, please contact our Research Associate, Bahar Tajrobehkar at b.tajrobehkar@ubc.ca.

  • If you would like to send a comment, suggestion, or message to the Task Force on Race, Indigeneity, and Social Justice, you can do so through the mailbox form below. All entries will be sent automatically to our Research Associate, Bahar Tajrobehkar (b.tajrobehkar@ubc.ca). The form can be submitted anonymously or to include your name, email, and/or role so that Bahar can follow-up, if necessary. All submissions and messages will remain confidential.
