Reconciliation by Regional Universities

With a shared goal of creating a good future for the next generation, many Indigenous communities and Regional Universities have partnered together. These formative relationships serve as the key to unlocking the potential for broader socio-economic change needed to support healing, growth and the success of all communities and of Canada as a whole.

Against this backdrop, Vancouver Island University and the McConnell Foundation hosted a meeting for Presidents of Regional Universities in December 2018. The goal was to consider actions they could undertake collectively to advance reconciliation across the post-secondary sector. This work is in nascent stages, and will develop under direction and guidance by Indigenous communities.
