About the Office of Indigenous Initiatives

We ensure Indigeneity is embedded across the University including student life, teaching, learning, curriculum, governance, faculty, campus space, planning and research. This supports UNBC’s commitment to reconciliation as Indigenization is recognized as one of the pillars of UNBC’s Academic Action Plan.


Strategic priorities

  • Engage and consult with Indigenous communities, students and faculty on Indigenization.
  • Strategic planning and implementation of Indigenous Initiatives.
  • Liase with senior administration.
  • Develop and maintain the Aboriginal Service Plan.
  • Develop an Indigenous Action Plan that aligns with the University Strategic Road Map and the goals of the Aboriginal Service Plan.
  • Engage in meaningful, ongoing engagement with Indigenous communities to build long-term relationships to best serve the needs of Indigenous communities and students.
  • Ensure Indigenous students receive the necessary support through our First Nations Centre.

The Vice-Provost of Indigenous Initiatives and the Managers of the Office of Indigenous Initiatives and the First Nations Centre encourage you to explore the Indigenous Resource Dati (Doorway) for Indigenous-related resources at UNBC.
