Would you like to know more about Indigenization and reconciliation in the university context? Join us in the FAUW Indigenization Reading Circle. Your area of expertise doesn’t matter because there are no prerequisites! Together we will work at hearing Indigenous voices and contemplate what respect for Indigenous ways of knowing and being means for universities.
All members of the UW community are welcome.
