Memorial releases update on work done in relation to Indigenous identity verification


Memorial University President pro tempore Dr Neil Bose and Chair of the Board of Regents Glenn Barnes have released an update on the university’s Indigenous identity work. In the statement, Bose and Barnes affirm the importance of Indigenous identity verification to the university. While the university was exploring the use of a round table to address Indigenous identity verification, Memorial has decided to engage independent, external Indigenous resources. These external consultations with members of Indigenous communities will shape Memorial’s process of Indigenous identity verification. The university will next reach out to experts in the field and determine what external resources should lead the engagement.
