More than fifty faculty and student services staff from a range of post-secondary institutions in NS reviewed the modules. The significant heavy lifting was done by a small committee comprised of co-leads Jill Provoe (NSCC), and Paula Barry Mercer (formerly MSVU), and Adrienne Glasgow (NSCC), Stefani Woods (SMU), Paula Romanow (StFX), Rachel Whitney (NSCC), and Meghan Murphy (NS Government). Your commitment to and passion for equity is the reason these modules exist.
Digital development thanks also goes out to Jim Simpson (NSCC), Nataliya Bukhanova, and Grant Potter.
Special thanks to Corrie Melanson, who created the content for committee review and adopted all the faculty and staff feedback and ensured everyone was heard and reflected in this publication. Chad O’Brien, her associate, supported the system implementation and digital development for this project.
