Strategy 17: Indigenous Engagement

Support the objectives and actions of the renewed Indigenous Strategic Plan

Much of the guidance for UBC’s Indigenous engagement can be traced back to the 2009 Aboriginal Strategic Plan, which outlined ten key areas of strategic engagement, and beyond that to the UBC-Okanagan Nation Alliance Memorandum of Affiliation (2005) and the UBC-Musqueam Memorandum of Affiliation (2006). The plan and memoranda have been models of effective action, with implementation reports published in 2010, 2012 and 2014. UBC is adopting a similar approach in implementing Shaping UBC’s Next Century. The 2018 Indigenous Strategic Plan is continuing this work and represents our shared commitment as a university community. It also provides the framework for statements of faculty- and unit-level commitments that are forming UBC’s response to the Calls to Action released in 2015 by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
