Aboriginal Academic Staff Conference

October 04, 2024 at 9:00am - October 05, 2024 at 5:00pm

Beyond Words: Translating Indigenization of the Academy into Practice

Friday, October 4 and Saturday, October 5, 2024 / The Hotel Saskatchewan - Regina, Saskatchewan

The journey toward Indigenizing the academy, beginning with the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action, has been underway for close to 10 years. While much progress has been made, it is clear more work lies ahead to transform the Commission’s call to Indigenize universities and colleges into practice.

The 2024 CAUT Aboriginal Academic Staff Conference will be an important opportunity for Indigenous scholars and their non-Indigenous allies to join with one another in the spirit of reconciliation, build networks and peer support, take stock of what has been accomplished, and identify what more needs to be done. Topics of discussion will include the experiences of Indigenous teachers and researchers, how institutions can best navigate claims of Indigenous identity, and how academic staff associations have worked, through bargaining and advocacy, to improve Indigenous representation and recognition of Indigenous knowledge in post-secondary education.  

The conference agenda will be available soon.
