Consultation in Iqaluit

Location:Frobisher Inn
Key Contact:Theresa Hendricks

The Carleton University Indigenous Strategic Initiatives Committee (CUISIC) was formed last fall to re-energize relationships with Indigenous communities in the region and across the country.

As a result, CUISIC co-chairs Jerry Tomberlin, Kahente Horn-Miller and Benny Michaud have been working to bring together a broad representation of people from both our on-campus and off-campus communities. The committee is comprised of First Nations, Métis and Inuit members from local communities, as well as Carleton faculty, professional services staff and students. The committee has been meeting regularly since December.

Out of those meetings, we’ve developed a list of engagement themes and detailed questions that we have been discussing with various groups of people. By early fall, we hope to have a draft report, which will include Carleton-specific recommendations as part of an institutional response to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Our goal is to ensure that these recommendations create spaces for dialogue and relationship-building. Carleton University is fully committed to ensuring that the final recommendations are implemented in order to support positive long-term changes on our campus.
