Event description

Description

ACMP's Orientation day event at Carleton University is an effort to continue to acknowledge the White Settler discourse that is associated with the institution. This reality can create barriers for Afro-Caribbean Black (ACB) students, along with racialized students. We believe that accessing student services such as writing services, are available for racialized students, but there continue to be barriers for said students. For instance, ACB and racialized students may know where and how to access critical students services for their social and academic development. However, the services may not be beneficial for them as they are not culturally sensitive to the needs of ACB and racialized students. In this particular scenario, the services become difficult for students to seek help.

ACMP's 2-hour event will focus on helping first-year ACB students transition from high school to post-secondary education while continuing to support those who are returning to Carleton. ACMP will be working in solidarity with other racialized and non-racialized to offer 2 hour orientation day event, as a way to create inclusive and safe Carleton University. We will discuss access to resources for mental health, financial guidance, academic advice, career planning, and more. This event will also include a segment on "First-Year Survival Tips: Things I wish I knew in the First Year." Students will get a chance to hear from mature students and have the opportunity to ask questions.

ACMP will also be focusing on the following:

-Empower Carleton undergraduate and graduate students with an understanding of the available services, such as:
