Indigenization and reconciliation at Mount Royal University
Mount Royal University acknowledges the impact that a recent court decision may have on our campus community, and on Indigenous students, faculty and staff most of all, whose well-being is our first and foremost concern.
We take this time to remind our campus that indigenization and reconciliation remain priorities for Mount Royal, though we have much that we still need to learn. In this process of learning and growing, we are grateful to Indigenous leaders on campus, and we seek to ensure Indigenous students, staff and faculty are valued as members of MRU’s inclusive community.
Mount Royal is proud of our indigenization efforts, but we recognize we are just beginning this important work and this work will take time.
The Iniskim Centre offers exceptional services and supports to our students, and we’ve recently launched the Office of Academic Indigenization to advance the indigenization of our curriculum and to integrate Indigenous perspectives. We are in the early stages of our five-year Indigenous Strategic Plan, and we are creating a body of writings on this important subject. There is much more that we must do.
We continue to find ways to indigenize our campus as one of only five top priorities of the University Strategic Plan. We recognize and embrace the long road ahead.
Should you have any questions about indigenization at Mount Royal, please reach out to any member of the University’s executive team.
