The Office of the Vice-President (Indigenous) is empowering UM community members to personalize their acknowledgements in a manner that honours their own reflections. UM students, staff and faculty are invited to participate in 60-minute workshops that cover the history of UM’s acknowledgement, current controversies around territory acknowledgements and considerations for building your own personal statement, along with resources to do so.
