Indigenous Education Advisory Circle

Purpose

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) is committed to ensuring that decisions related to Indigenous education and scholarship at the university are informed and guided by the Indigenous communities which it serves. To this end, the Indigenous Education Advisory Circle (IEAC) provides guidance to the University on its current goals for Indigenous student enrolment, retention and support, and its efforts to enhance awareness of Indigenous history and celebrate Indigenous cultures and ways of knowing. In accordance with the Aboriginal Education Strategy set out by the Province of Ontario, the Indigenous Education Advisory Circle is responsible for ensuring that Indigenous people are appropriately engaged in decision-making by the institution on relevant issues. Consistent with the terms of the strategy, the IEAC includes the Provost as a representative of the UOIT’s senior administration with a direct link to the President as well as Academic Council and the Board of Governors.
