Royal Roads unveils Emerging Indigenous Scholars Circle

Royal Roads University has unveiled the Emerging Indigenous Scholars Circle, a program that provides guidance and mentorship to Indigenous scholars who are beginning their academic careers. The Circle currently hosts three emerging scholars who receive both one-on-one and group-based support from Circle Chair Shauneen Pete. The scholars will advance teaching and research at the intersection of their respective areas of study and Indigeneity, engage in relationship-building with Indigenous communities, and determine ways in which Royal Roads can fulfil its obligations to decolonization and reconciliation. In her role, Pete hopes to help remove barriers for the scholars, alleviate their heavy workloads, and support the advancement of their careers.
