At our Open House, we will:

About Indigenous Initiatives:

Indigenous Initiatives at CTLT develops and offers programming, resources, and consultations focused on Indigenous engagement in curriculum, pedagogy, classroom climate, and professional development.

To facilitate respectful dialogue in learning spaces on campus and within the communities we work, we provide support and professional development for faculty, teaching assistants, and graduate students who are teaching in face-to-face, blended, or online classes.

Indigenous Initiatives supports the UBC teaching and learning community in connecting with the unceded Musqueam land on which our learning and work takes place. Our resources, programming, and services are informed by our relationship with the Musqueam First Nation. We recognize the value that this ongoing relationship brings to our work and to the university more broadly. We make every effort to continue this relationship respectfully and in accordance with the Memorandum of Affiliation created between the Musqueam Nation and UBC.
