Faculty of Health Sciences

Indigenous Advisory Circle

The Faculty of Health Sciences established an Indigenous Advisory Circle in January, 2020. As a Faculty, we are committed to growing and nurturing relationships with Indigenous communities in Southern Alberta. We are also committed to moving forward as a Faculty in ways that honour, respect and incorporate Indigenous perspectives and knowledges, and address the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The Circle is advisory to the Dean and provides recommendations for action to the leadership of Health Sciences.
