Augustana's Workshops in Building Capacity for Reconciliation is a co-curricular certificate program, open to Augustana students, staff, and faculty, as well as members of the larger Camrose and University of Alberta communities who want to learn more about the Indigenous peoples of Canada. Through a series of six thematic workshops, participants will learn from experts, engage in meaningful dialogue, and consider the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Final Report and 94 Calls to Action. With a focus on how Augustana can be a leader in reconciliation at the post-secondary level, these workshops will also build participants' personal capacities to engage in reconciliation work.
Registration for 2017 - 2018 is now closed. Questions about the workshops and the program can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
