Celebrating our Indigenous community
The University of Manitoba affirmed their longstanding commitment to making Indigenous Achievement a priority in its new five-year strategic plan. A new Indigenous Connect quarterly newsletter has been launched to help celebrate the successes and share news of note from the university’s Indigenous community.
“There is a lot of exciting work being done by many dedicated teams across our campuses. The Indigenous Connect newsletter is a place to bring regular updates from all corners of the U of M,” wrote Deborah Young, executive lead, Indigenous Achievement.
Young explained that this newsletter is based on the Pathways to Indigenous Achievement framework.
Programs and services available to Indigenous students are profiled in this newsletter, as well as events of note that celebrate the success of the Indigenous community.
“Learn about the U of M’s supports for Indigenous students and examples of how they are working,” said Young, “Find out about partnerships being made with communities; discover the research being done by our Indigenous faculty and students and how Indigenous knowledge is being shared on campus; and celebrate the successes of our First Nations, Métis and Inuit population.”
The newsletter is published electronically every three months (May 2015, August 2015, November 2015, February 2016). Visit Indigenous Connect to read and subscribe to the newsletter.
