UMoncton develops Indigenous Elders in Residence program

The Université de Moncton has developed an Indigenous Elders in Residence program through consultation with Mi’kmaq Elders and Wolastoqey Elders. Through the program, Elders will provide Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, staff, and faculty with support, encouragement, and guidance. They will promote understanding and respect for Indigenous perspectives and share their knowledge and experiences of Wabanaki life and culture, which will guide UMoncton in implementing the Truth and Reconciliation calls to action. The program will be established on all three UMoncton campuses and will start in the 2024-25 academic year.
