Racism in our institutions affects individuals through the learning environment and the campus community. This institutional racism generates tensions that distort cultural understanding and narrows the educational experiences of all students. There are very few policies and procedures at the systemic level that challenge racist and colonial behavior. This lack of structure then contributes to systemic racism and often fosters a teaching and learning environment that sustains racist and colonial attitudes.
High tuition fees impact racialized students disproportionately due to the marginalization of these communities. Access to equal education is already challenging in primary and secondary schools and more difficult within the post-secondary education system. This campaign works to promote awareness about racism and colonialism on campuses as something that impacts students within post-secondary education.
