U of T, UManitoba lead study on Indigenous student experiences


A new collaborative research study called “Indigenous Student Experiences Post TRC” will examine the experiences of Indigenous instructors and students who either teach or are enrolled in Indigenous Requirement Courses (IRCs). The project will be co-led by University of Toronto Assistant Professor Dr Jennifer Brant and University of Manitoba Associate Dean of Indigenous Education Dr Frank Deer and supported by researchers from Lakehead University and Simon Fraser University. Dr Brant explains that the project is set to fill gaps by “gathering educational narratives of Indigenous students” who are enrolled in IRCs across programs in Manitoba and northern Ontario. The project is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
