UQAT commits to including Indigenous perspectives in all programs by 2026

Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue has committed to updating is curriculum to ensure that all programs include Indigenous perspectives by 2026. This initiative will integrate Indigenous knowledge into each UQAT department’s academic curriculum, resulting in courses and programs that have been designed, evaluated, and revised by and with First Peoples. Work is already underway and is being led by the Dean of Studies and the Mamawi Mikimodan Service. “Through this initiative, UQAT recognizes that Indigenous knowledge is just as important as scientific knowledge,” said UQAT Rector Vincent Rousson. “This recognition gives Indigenous perspectives a place in the programs offered at UQAT, thereby building on a plurality of knowledge.”
