Indigenous Learning Fund Information Session

Tuesday, August 4, 2020
12:00 pm

Western’s Office of Indigenous Initiatives builds upon the strategic commitments articulated in Western’s Indigenous Strategic Plan, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. These plans affirm the responsibility of universities through their educational offerings, to address the historical and systemic ongoing barriers that Indigenous peoples and ways of knowing face in fully participating in university environments. This work also involves proactively creating space for all people to learn about Indigenous ways of knowing in the academy. The Office of Indigenous Initiatives is deeply committed to building and strengthening relationships with Indigenous communities locally, provincially, nationally, and internationally, and strives to create an academic learning environment where all students, staff, faculty and community members experience the University as a welcoming, supportive, culturally-safe environment in which Indigenous languages and ways of knowing, being and doing are respected.

In keeping with these strategic priorities, the Office of Indigenous Initiatives at Western University is issuing a call for proposals for one time, single year grants up to a maximum of $7500 that will advance innovation in Indigenous learning at Western. Funded initiatives must be completed by January 30, 2022.
