Interview with Maydianne Andrade
Maydianne Andrade, Professor of Biology and Vice Dean, Faculty Affairs and Equity at UTSC, talks about the educational journey that led her to UTSC. Maydianne shares her initial impression of the UTSC campus and how it may impact its overall perception in comparison to UTM while also discussing how the campus has changed over time. She highlights her experience as a Black woman in education, especially her time as one of the only Black woman in fundamental science across the three campuses of UofT. She speaks about people of colour, particularly women, and their involvement in the university. She shares her sense of how far UTSC has come in terms of inclusiveness since she first arrived in 2000 and how far she believes it still needs to go.
