Canada’s universities adopt new principles on Indigenous education
July 2, 2015 —
U of M President and Vice-Chancellor David Barnard, who is also chair and past president of of Universities Canada (UC), has aided in UC’s adoption of “a set of principles outlining their shared commitment to enhancing educational opportunities for Indigenous students and fostering reconciliation across Canada [… to close] the education gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students [ which is] a long-term core priority for Universities Canada. Over the past year, the Association’s Board of Directors and member universities developed the 13 principles to guide Canada’s universities as they continue work to enhance access and success for Aboriginal students in higher education.”
