As shared in our Faculty of Education Vision Statement, we hold ourselves accountable to honouring Indigenous perspectives through our teaching practices, our curriculum, as well as our daily interactions with students, each other and the community at large.

We work individually and as a faculty to:

  • share foundational historical and contemporary knowledge
  • foster understanding
  • embody a broad and deep perspective
  • maintain a welcoming environment for all learners.

We are committed to providing meaningful, contextualized learning for all our Education students, and as such continue to deepen and broaden our own knowledge and understanding with a strong focus on relationship.
