INDIGENOUS EDUCATION STRATEGY
We're pleased to announce the release of our Indigenous Education strategy, which is a pathway and commitment to transformative change.
Starting this semester, the crest of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, along with our Indigenous Initiatives medallion, will be proudly displayed next to GBC's logo on all campus doorways.
The Indigenous Initiatives team has many events planned for the next few months, including our Indigenous Knowledge Keeper Series. Visit our Cultural Events & Teachings page to register!
Biintige - Welcome
We welcome George Brown students, employees, alumni and community members to this space. The Indigenous Initiatives team promotes knowledge sharing and works to support students in achieving their academic, work and life goals at the College.
Throughout the year, we curate events, teachings and workshops to promote understanding and appreciation of Indigenous culture.
We are fortunate to learn from the knowledge of our elders, Pauline Shirt and Julie Debassige. Pauline and Julie are integral to the Indigenous Initiatives team as they help our community to better understand both our history and potential future.
