FAUW will be recognizing National Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21) and Indigenous History Month (June) by holding a faculty reading circle on Indigeneity and the University.
Join us June 22, 2:30-4:30 in the Board Room on the second floor of the Grad House. We’ll provide snacks and reading materials – a selection of recent brief public statements about Indigenous initiatives in academe.
