May 13, 2020

University College of the North has launched the Reconciliation, Research and Academic Innovation (RRAI) department. The department is expected to build a shared understanding of reconciliation, increase the quality of Indigenous-informed pedagogy, and create stronger educational and research ties with UCN’s surrounding Indigenous communities. “UCN has accomplished a great deal in its efforts to Indigenize our institution and the new department is the next step,” said Harvey Briggs, the Associate Vice President of RRAI. “The new department will develop shared understanding and praxis in the vital areas of reconciliation, academic programming and teaching, learning and research at UCN.” UCN (MB)
