Aboriginal Programs and Services, the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies, Indigenous Studies, and the Library have partnered to develop a series of events and programing that align with the goals and principles of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and that coincide with the last National Event in Vancouver. In order to provide a wide-range of informative, engaging, and authentic learning experiences for staff, faculty and students, these events range from on-campus break-out sessions and discussions series at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Arts, to a unique opportunity for students, staff or faculty to attend the National Event in Vancouver as part of the UBC Okanagan campus community. Below is a brief summary of each event series:
Understanding Truth and Reconciliation:
A series of on-campus opportunities to witness testimonials about the Indian Residential School System in Canada, learn about the establishment, mandate, and work of the TRC, settler responsibilities, and share experiences of attending the TRC National Event in Vancouver or what truth and reconciliation mean to you.
