UM to establish university-wide Indigenous leadership structure

Vice-President (Indigenous) position has been approved as first step

In February 2019, Provost and Vice-President (Academic) Dr. Janice Ristock established a committee, chaired by Dr. Catherine Cook, Vice-Dean Indigenous, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, to assess the existing mandate and support structures for Indigenous senior leadership and provide recommendations going forward on the role and its mandate, appropriate reporting structures and units, and necessary supports.

The committee, which also included an Elder, Indigenous faculty, staff, students, and senior academic leadership, has concluded its work and presented its report, University of Manitoba Indigenous Senior Leadership: Report and Recommendations to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic).

“We are pleased to submit a document consistent with our analysis of the background material and the feedback from our stakeholders received from the consultation sessions, town halls, the web questionnaire and email feedback,” writes Dr. Cook in the introduction to the report. “The recommendations focus on the key themes of Leadership, Executive and Program teams, Faculty, Campus Community and Administrative Infrastructure at the University of Manitoba.”
