The ProCom Academic Advising website is dedicated to undergraduate students enrolled in the School of Professional Communication. This site offers ProCom students a comprehensive guide outlining all the essential academic information they need to know as they progress through the program, and the support services available to them along the way to ensure they make the most of their university experience.

In Solidarity with the Black Community

Faculty members, staff and students in the School of Professional Communication are appalled by the ongoing presence of anti-Black racism and anti-Black violence in our society. Systemic racism and its many manifestations must be opposed in all institutions, including universities. As teachers, students and researchers of professional communication, we are committed to analyzing and challenging anti-Black racism in societal discourses and in the communication practices of institutions. We also recognize our positions of privilege as members of the academic community. We have a responsibility to do everything we can to make the university a more equitable space that supports the full participation of members of the Black community. ProCom commits to integrating communication practices for inclusivity, accessibility, equity and anti-oppression as a key learning objective of our curriculum and a core part of what we do in all of our activities in the School. I look forward to collaborating with students, faculty, staff and community partners to ensure that all aspects of the School, from student experience to hiring practices to curriculum development, work toward this vital objective.

Stop Anti-Asian and Misogynistic Hate

The community of faculty, staff and students in the School of Professional Communication condemns all forms of racially-motivated and misogynist discrimination and violence. We are disturbed by the increase in violence and hate against the Asian community and against women and girls in Canada and around the world. We are committed to ending racist, misogynistic violence and dismantling systemic discrimination through deliberation, education, and research. 

Anyone who believes they have experienced discrimination, bias, or harassment in the Ryerson community is urged to report it to Human Rights Services.

Strategies and resources are available in the Responding to Hate Toolkit, developed by the Ryerson Advisory Committee to Combat Anti-Asian Racism.
