Duncan McCue, an award-winning CBC broadcaster and leading advocate for fostering the connection between journalism and Indigenous communities, is joining Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication.

McCue will formally take up a new tenure track position on July 1, as an associate professor, specializing in Indigenous Journalism and (Story)telling.

In addition, McCue will also play a key role in working with Carleton colleagues to launch a new journalism skills certificate on the ground in Indigenous communities.

“I’m thrilled to join Carleton’s faculty, and especially excited to help create a new intensive Indigenous journalism certificate, designed to meet the needs of remote learners,” said McCue. “Journalism schools have struggled to attract Indigenous students, and Carleton is committed to changing that. Canada needs more Indigenous journalists and storytellers.”

In recognition of the many barriers that prevent Indigenous people from gaining access to journalism education and training, the new certificate program will be accessible in Indigenous communities.
