The Shoestring Initiative

Advancing socioeconomic diversity in Canadian universities


Welcome to the Shoestring Initiative community discussion board.

This discussion board is dedicated to bringing together first-generation students, faculty, and staff from poverty or working class backgrounds. This is a forum for community members to share with one another and provide support. This is also a forum for us to share our successes, strengths, and joys.

IMPORTANT: In the spirit of community, it is important that our conversations remain welcoming and non-judgmental. There is absolutely zero tolerance for abusive language or behaviour. Although we will do our best to moderate, if you notice any problematic behaviour, please let us know and we will ensure it is investigated.

Be sure to register to join the discussion!
