The Canadian Association of University Teachers will be holding its 5th Forum for Aboriginal Academic Staff on November 6-7, 2015 at the Radisson Hotel Downtown in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
From the CAUT's website: "In light of the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Report, this year's forum will allow participants to collectively consider:
- The implications of austerity measures on Aboriginal academic staff and Indigenous Studies programs;
- What academic staff associations can do to promote Indigenous Knowledge and support Aboriginal academic staff; and
- How to build inclusive academic cultures."
For more information about the Forum, please see the CAUT website.
The YUFA Executive has voted to sponsor up to three participants from our membership. Delegates supported by YUFA will be expected to submit a report on the Forum to the Executive one month after the event (see YUFA's Sponsored Conference Guidelines for more details). If you are interested in attending, please email [email protected] by October 23, 2015.
