In line with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, and through the development and adoption of an Indigenous Strategy, the University of Calgary commits to:
- the process of reconciliation, which entails a collective journey that honours Indigenous peoples’ stories, knowledge and traditions and the renewal and development of authentic relationships with Indigenous peoples and communities;
- establishing a welcoming, inclusive and culturally competent campus community that respects, includes and promotes Indigenous ways of knowing, teaching, learning and research;
- creating and maintaining shared, ethical space inclusive of Indigenous peoples’ representation within the student body, staff, faculty, leadership and governing structures;
- developing a campus community that understands the histories and world views of Indigenous peoples and the importance of connection to land;
- ensuring policies, practices and procedures are supportive and respectful of Indigenous ways of doing;
- creating space and processes for ongoing "full-circle" community engagement through dialogue with Indigenous communities and other institutional stakeholders; and
- ensuring sustainability and renewal of the Indigenous Strategy so it remains a current and dynamic agent for transformation for the university.
