Anti-racism education

Diverse students with many racial and cultural backgrounds

Racism & COVID-19 Resources

(You will find other COVID-19-related resources on the Human Rights tab)

Fleming College is a racially diverse community, and our student body comes from many parts of Canada, north and south, urban and rural. Indigenous and other racialized students, including newcomers to Canada and international students from over 30 countries, make up over 30% of the student body (Fleming Student Profile). Issues of systemic racism facing those who are Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) are currently receiving important public attention. There are many great anti-racism resources out there, but here are a few to help Fleming students and employees learn about the issues
