The Mosaic institute is pleased to welcome a number of new faces to its team over the summer. All of them are already making important contributions to our program development, research, and fundraising work.

Dalu Ndlovu, a student in the B.A. Honours program in Human Rights and Equity Studies at York University, is currently part of our team as our 2015 Maytree Foundation Mosaic Intern. Originally from Zimbabwe, Dalu provides programming support to our “Next Generation” “UofMosaic”, and “New Beginnings” initiatives. He is also contributing to other projects taking place at the Institute over the summer months.

Maria Fakhruddin, a student in the Master of Global Affairs (MGA) program at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, is currently part of our team as our 2015 Mosaic/Munk Intern. Maria is working on a number of research-oriented projects over the summer. In particular, she is working to develop an environmental scan, research plan, and project proposal for a prospective national research project that examines the perceptions and realities of the phenomenon of so-called “radicalization” as understood by Canada’s Muslim communities.

Devraj Ray, an undergraduate student in history and political science at McGill University, is part of our team as the 2015 S.M. Blair Family Foundation Intern. Devraj is working on a number of projects at the Institute in support of the “UofMosaic” program. His particular focus is to support UofMosaic student leaders in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver as they develop “dialogue to action” projects on their campuses.
