Indigenization of the academy refers to the meaningful inclusion of Indigenous peoples’ knowledge(s) in the everyday fabric of the institution from policies to practices across all levels, not just in the curriculum.

  • How and to what extent do your curriculum content and pedagogy reflect Indigenous peoples’ voices and perspectives across the academy in respectful ways?
  • What does a successful Indigenized decolonized post-secondary institution look like?

During this reading circle, we will review Michelle Pidgeon’s 2016 article, More Than a Checklist: Meaningful Indigenous Inclusion in Higher Education and discuss what Indigenization means regarding institutional initiatives (e.g., policy, programs and practices).

Format: The session will be offered both Online (via Teams) and in-person (H629.02).
Spaces available: 12
