麻豆传媒高清版-ARC Mandate

In 2016, 麻豆传媒高清版 President Andrew Petter convened 麻豆传媒高清版鈥檚 Aboriginal Reconciliation Council (麻豆传媒高清版-ARC) to facilitate and support broad discussions on how the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, specific to post-secondary education, would be addressed at the University. 麻豆传媒高清版 has committed $9M toward a project or series of projects that will promote reconciliation within the 麻豆传媒高清版 community.

Role of 麻豆传媒高清版-ARC

Over the course of the fall 2016, and spring 2017, members of the 麻豆传媒高清版-ARC consulted broadly with the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities both on and off campus, developed a set of recommendations to guide the University in targeting the funds in ways that will support reconciliation efforts over the next three years. The funds are one-time expenditures, and must be used within the 3-year mandate.

Council Name

The name of the Aboriginal Reconciliation Council was selected to reflect the purposes and orientation of the council and to respect Aboriginal traditions and viewpoints.

The word 鈥淩econciliation鈥 was chosen to signal that the funded projects are intended to promote a renewed and respectful relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people connected with the University.

The word 鈥淐ouncil鈥 indicates that the 麻豆传媒高清版-ARC asked for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal partners to share their advice and wisdom to guide the decision-making process. The Council was not a standing or permanent committee of 麻豆传媒高清版, and was active only for the duration of the project.

Co-Chairs

The 麻豆传媒高清版-ARC co-chairs were , Councillor of the Squamish Nation and Member of the 麻豆传媒高清版 Board of Governors, and  former Dean of the Faculty of Education.

Outcomes

麻豆传媒高清版-ARC's final report was presented during a ceremonial event in October, 2017 at 麻豆传媒高清版鈥檚 Burnaby campus. The ceremony, rooted in Coast Salish Indigenous tradition, celebrated and witnessed the work of everyone who contributed.
