Enriched Perspectives: A Journey in Strengthening Indigenous Knowledge for Educational Leaders.

Dates: July 23, 2024-August 3, 2024

This is a professional development program open to faculty and administrators at academic institutions who want to integrate Indigenous knowledge and practices into education and engagement, and understand the relevant history of colonialism in higher education and its legacy in the present day. 

Throughout the program, experiential learning will take place. Participants will be taken to the Woodland Cultural Centre to visit the local Indigenous community, Six Nations of the Grand River. Participants will enter into a cultural learning experience with the Haudenosaunee people, promoting an understanding of the community and their history of resiliency.
