Workshops in Building Capacity for Reconciliation

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.

Interested in participating in the workshop series - register to participate using the Google Form below. Registrations will be open until 4:00 pm September 13, 2017. Questions about the workshops and the program can be directed to augustana.reconciliation@ualberta.ca.

Kindly understand that due to the nature of these workshops, registration will be limited, and spaces for staff, faculty, students, and community members are capped by group. All registrations will be reviewed after the registration deadline by a panel. In our selection process, we will be looking for diversity in departments and roles at the university, as well as in individual backgrounds and experiences. All registrants will be contacted as to the status of their registration by September 22, 2017.

Note for public participation: Due to the cost of hosting these workshops, we are offering public participation on a cost-recovery basis. The cost per person to participate is $150 for the series, however through generous donor contributions we are able to offer public participation in the workshop series for $75 per person for 2017-2018. Because registration does not guarantee a spot in the workshops, this fee will be collected after participation in the workshop series is confirmed in September. If you have any questions, you can contact us at augustana.reconciliation@ualberta.ca.

The Workshops in Building Capacity for Reconciliation program wishes to thank the Best Western Plus Camrose Resort and Casino for their ongoing support of this program.
