Ad Hoc Teaching and Learning Strategic Documents Renewal Subcommittee 

 

I. Background

The intention of this exercise is to ensure that these two teaching and learning strategic documents explicitly include language that anti-racism, diversity, and inclusion are intrinsic and vital parts of the vision and mission of the institution. Creation of this ad hoc subcommittee also present the opportunity to align revisions with those from Extending the Rafters the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Task Force  which recommends the enhancement and promotion of inclusive learning spaces on campus with respect to indigeneity.
