Dal green lights Black and African diaspora degree program


Dalhousie University has given the green light to a unique Black and African diaspora degree program focused on the experience of African Canadians. The program has already received approval from the university’s senate, which Dal transition year program director Isaac Saney described the as a “poignant and historic moment.” Black Cultural Society of Nova Scotia executive director Russell Grosse praised the program as a “remarkable opportunity” to focus on Black history, particularly the unique story of the African Canadian experience, and learn more through research. The program must be approved by the Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission to move forward.
