Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic)

Indigenous Initiatives

The University of Alberta has been working towards implementing the Truth & Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action in thoughtful, meaningful and sustainable ways. The goal is to ensure that the University of Alberta is a welcoming and safe environment for Indigenous students, staff, faculty and community members and that programs and strategies reflect the institutional commitment to engaging Indigenous perspectives. With that goal in mind, the Indigenous Programming and Research Portfolio was established in the Office of the Provost & Vice-President (Academic) to facilitate institutional collaboration and communication to support the development and implementation of programs, services and initiatives related to Indigenous engagement and transformative practices that respect and honour Indigenous knowledges across the University of Alberta.
