Black History Month

Black History Month

February 19, 2021

To recognize and celebrate Black History Month, the Faculty is pleased to present a few of our student scholars and alumni.

We acknowledge their accomplishments and look forward to following the work of these Black scholars. Many aim to work on global issues surrounding sustainability in agriculture, the food system, economics and the complex policies surrounding these. They share why they chose to study at UBC in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, challenges they see ahead, and their sources of inspiration.
