Laurentian University has announced that its Bachelor of Arts programs will now require six credits of courses with Indigenous content in order to promote an understanding of the histories, cultures, and realities of Indigenous peoples in Canada. “We are proud of the tremendous work done within the faculty of arts to bring Indigenous content into its programs and courses,” said Laurentian Provost and Vice President of Academics Robert Kerr. “The new requirement approved by senate means that more students who graduate from Laurentian University will have a good understanding of Indigenous history and culture.” CBC | Sudbury Star
