The University of Saskatchewan is aiming to “Indigenize” their campus and operations while also becoming the university the world needs.
Leaders at the U of S unveiled the university’s new seven-year strategic plan Wednesday afternoon, which will focus on integrating Indigenous knowledge and reconciliation goals throughout campus.
It also aims to increase collaboration among departments for research, local community impacts and improving academic rankings.
U of S President Peter Stoicheff said the university will be devoting a significant percentage of funds towards Indigenization, which will include a push to increase Indigenous student enrollment and hiring of more Indigenous staff.
