Thank you for your interest in the Indigenizing the Academy Conference. The Conference is now full and conference registration is closed. 

ANSUT acknowledges that it is operating in the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq First Nation.

This symbol informs us of the government and leadership in Mi’kma’ki. Mi’kmaq people say that the seven hills represent the seven districts; the seven crosses are the seven district chiefs while the moon and the sun in the centre are there to remind us of the Creator.



The Truth and Reconciliation Commission makes it clear that there is an urgent need to indigenize post-secondary education in Canada. But how, exactly, is this to be done? Join Stephen Augustine, Dr. Cheryl Bartlett, Dr. Marie Battiste, Professor David Newhouse, Dr. Albert Marshall, Dr. Blair Stonechild and John Sylliboy, and share discussions on what Indigenizing the Academy really means, advocacy, two-eyed seeing and how to help students learn and succeed.
