Indigenous leaders form NIUSLA to network, engage in dialogue on Indigenous leadership

Indigenous Senior Administrative leaders from postsecondary institutions across Canada have joined together to form the National Indigenous University Senior Leaders’ Association (NIUSLA). NIULSA is co-chaired by First Nations University President Dr Jacqueline Ottmann and University of Calgary Vice-Provost Dr Michael Hart. The group will engage in dialogue on leadership roles and responsibilities in the university context, and will focus on developing an association for Indigenous senior leaders, addressing relevant challenges, increasing NIUSLA communication and capacity, and strengthening Indigenous senior leaders. “It’s a step towards further strengthening and building capacities of Indigenous senior leadership while being the national network for the administration, advancing issues and concerns of Indigenous peoples … and connecting with other Indigenous organizations with common goals,” said Ottmann.
