Samuel Jokodola, a master’s student in the Faculty of Education, is exploring the experiences of racialized internationally trained professionals in the Canadian academy for his thesis.
He is currently recruiting participants for his study, which will provide a safe and non-judgemental space to share their lived experiences.
- Have you held a position as a member of staff or faculty in a Canadian post-secondary institution for at least a year?
- Do you identify as a member of any racialized group?
- Did you complete the equivalent of a Canadian college or university degree internationally?
If you answered “yes” to all these questions, you may make a suitable participant. As a token of appreciation, participants will receive a gift card.
Jokodola hopes to highlight what respondents regard as important for their success within the academy as internationally trained professionals, identify and appreciate their cultural wealth, and feature beneficial support mechanisms or programs that may inform institutional, communal, or provincial programs or policies.
The study has received clearance from the University of Windsor Research Ethics Board.
