What we do
We build internal and external partnerships with TMU students, faculty, staff and the broader Indigenous community in order to advance the priorities of the Indigenous Education Council. These priorities include student success, teaching, learning, research, community engagement and capacity building. A relational model with an emphasis on listening, analysis, advising and collaboration is used as a foundation to achieve our goals.
Indigenous Initiatives is represented on a number of committees and working groups to advance Indigenous education. We offer advice, share experience and expertise to develop strategies, initiatives and programming whose priorities include access for the Canadian Indigenous student population at TMU, and fostering collaboration and partnerships with the wider Indigenous communities.
Students are at the heart of our work
Our team provides support for students through events and programming organized by TMU's Gdoo-maawnjidimi Mompii – Indigenous Student Services. The team also runs a number of services, including the Indigenous Student Centre.
