“The Telfer School of Management values and fosters teamwork and collegiality, seeking to attract a diverse population both nationally and internationally. In turn, these values are reflected in the creation of a community where approachability and availability of all members is clear and evident.” - Abstract of the Telfer Standard of Conduct

Telfer spirit is fueled by each one of its members who bring with them their own heritage which constitutes our School’s rich identity.

Today, and throughout the month of February and beyond, we celebrate Black History through the work, achievements, and success of our students, colleagues, alumni, and community. The “Telfer Celebrates Black History Month” platform is intended to highlight stories from our community leaders and role models.

I’m truly inspired by their actions, and I’m honored to lead a school that genuinely believes that change comes from within. As such, our diversity is key in our mission to build a Better Canada.

Wojtek Michalowski
Interim Dean of the Telfer School of Management
