UBC Faculty of Education stands firm and united with those impacted by the systemic violence and anti-Black racism against Black communities in Canada.
The UBC Faculty of Education is committed to supporting Black student success and excellence. Dr. Bathseba Opini, of the Department of Educational Studies, and Dean of the Faculty of Education, Dr. Blye Frank, have taken the lead in establishing the Bimema Family Award in Teacher Education to honour, appreciate and reciprocate her family’s tradition of educators who have deep commitment and passion for education in their community. The Faculty of Education invites your support and we hope you will join us in this initiative.
Gifts will be directed to the Bimema Family Award in Teacher Education, with final decisions on the award description and student eligibility to be made in consultation with the Faculty of Education.
