Black and Racialized Student Success Centre (BRSSC)

Here to help racialized students.


To build a student Centre where Black, Racialized and historically underserved students are connected to communities and provided with resources to thrive and feel safe at Mohawk College.


  1. Responsible Reciprocity – working together for student success requires mutual respect and benefit.
  2. Collective Connection – relationships are built by connecting with people from other backgrounds and experiences so its important to celebrate all the ways we collectively enrich each other.
  3. Community Care – when one member of the community is in distress, we are all in distress, so we have to pay attention to our community with extreme care and thoughtfulness.
  4. Human Dignity – we value the human rights of every person and respect their autonomy and collective existence.
  5. Omni-Directional Leadership – we value multi-directional exchanges of different forms and modes of leadership experience.
  6. Omni-Directional Mentorship – we value multi-directional mentorship exchanges between students, staff, faculty, and the community.
