Welcome! We’re happy that you’ve chosen the University of Guelph and look forward to meeting you!
The University of Guelph is a place where students are encouraged to celebrate their many identities. Black students on our campus are often interested in learning more about groups and organizations that build community for black students. Amongst many groups and organizations that black students are involved in on campus, there are two that have been established to help provide support and build community for black students from across the country and across the world here in Guelph. If you are looking for information about groups related to faith and spirituality, please visit the faith pages of our many identities section.

Amilah Baksh, Cultural Diversity Advisor in the Office of Intercultural Affairs
I organize events and programs for students that focus on developing a greater awareness of and appreciation for diversity and inclusion here at the University of Guelph. I also act as an advisor and counsellor for students who identify as black or racialized. I can provide information about various student resources and offer support around issues concerning your mental health, life experiences or any other personal matters you may face.
Welcome to Guelph! I hope to meet you soon.
