UVic launches Indigenous Plan

September 12, 2017

The University of Victoria has announced that it will launch its first Indigenous Plan as part of its ongoing efforts to support increased Indigenous student recruitment and retention through innovative programming, bursaries, mentoring, and community-based internships. As part of the plan, the university is establishing the Learning from Each Other fund to provide meaningful engagement with Elders, as well as opportunities for learning Indigenous ways of knowing to students, faculty and staff. The fund will support events and activities such as faculty seminars, classroom visits, Elder honorariums, andĀ meetings off campus with community groups or local First Nations communities.
