The Office of Indigenous Initiatives (OII) at Queen’s University has established several positive shifts across the institutional landscape in only three years of existence: it has supported the growth in Indigenous students, staff, faculty and guiding community voices; it has led the renaming and reclaiming of physical spaces; and it is becoming a critical resource hub for Indigenous and non-Indigenous members of the Queen’s and ka’tarohkwi communities.
In order to achieve its full potential, the Office of Indigenous Initiatives requires a comprehensive plan that involves a review of the roots of its formation, where it finds itself in the present, and how it can continue to grow its voice and physical presence as a self-determining, integral part of Queen’s. With this in mind, the OII, with the ongoing support and collaboration of the Principal’s Office with an intention of peace, strength and a good mind, must focus on the critical need to assist, promote and protect all Indigenous staff, faculty, students and community partners.
