Our vision for offering inclusive transformation solutions

At Dalhousie’s Faculty of Management we believe that management education plays a vital role in taking great ideas from inspiration to realization. Our students become their generation’s managers and leaders – at home and around the world. They make remarkable contributions in large businesses, small not-for-profits, in their communities and in government.

To get where we need to be, to do what we need to do, to become what is needed today and tomorrow, our Faculty of Management community must reflect a diversity of lived experiences and perspectives.

The Promise Scholars program, focused on supporting Black and Indigenous students, with priority for African Nova Scotian and Mi’kmaq students, is critical to helping us achieve this vision.


Our Promise to Support Black and Indigenous students

Through the Promise Scholars program we support and nurture students with financial support as well as work and internship experiences, and dedicated and personalized academic and career mentoring.

We believe that our collective futures require us to attend to the ways we have excluded and prevented racialized students, and especially Black and Indigenous students, from fulfilling their promise.


Join Us

We are seeking support from the community to create a comprehensive support fund, the Promise Scholars Fund, to support students entering an undergraduate program through the Faculty of Management.

You can help us make a difference – not just for the Promise Scholars and the Faculty of Management, but for the future leadership of our businesses, non-profits, governments, and communities.

Social justice starts with equitable opportunities and access to education for everyone. If we want the world to be a better place, we should make education accessible to the marginalized.

I believe that an education at the Faculty of Management opens remarkable doors: I want those doors to be wide open for Black and Indigenous students.
