Along with Vice President Shannon Dea and Community Relations Coordinator Laura McDonald of the Faculty Association from the University of Waterloo (FAUW), Lori Campbell Director of Shatitsirótha’ Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre (WISC) was published in the new issue of Academic Matters: Decolonizing the University in an era of Truth and Reconciliation.

By late 2018, Lori, Shannon, and Laura within FAUW had made so much progress that they started to offer advice to other Ontario faculty associations about actions they could take in response to the TRC’s report and recommendations.

This article introduces readers to some of that advice, some of the reasons for the advice, and some examples of things that have worked at the University of Waterloo. There are two voices in this article. The article is primarily written in the voice of the group, reflecting the character of ongoing collaboration. However, in places Lori’s voice emerges alone. Lori is the only Indigenous co-author of this article and the person who has been doing this work the longest.

“We offer four overarching pieces of advice for faculty associations who wish to take on reconciliation, Indigenization, or decolonization: • Get uncomfortable, • Do the work, • Establish relationships, • Teach (and learn from) the right people.”
