CAUT ABORIGINAL ACADEMIC STAFF CONFERENCE:

The Sheraton Ottawa
Ottawa, ON K1P 5G2
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission concluded its formal process in December 2015, but the task of implementing its calls to action continues. The 2018 CAUT Aboriginal Academic Staff Conference will examine and discuss the progress being made, with a special focus on recommendations related to the post-secondary education sector.
This event is an important opportunity for Aboriginal academic staff to meet peers from across Canada, build networks of contact and support, and share high level discussion about the status of Indigenous academic staff in Canada, efforts to recognize Indigenous knowledge in the academy, and the challenges facing new Indigenous scholars.
The Conference is also an opportunity for all members of the academic community – Indigenous and non-Indigenous, students, professors, librarians – to come together in the spirit of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and explore efforts to Indigenize post-secondary education.
