UQAT commits to training all students in Indigenous perspectives by 2026


Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue has committed to training all its students in Indigenous perspectives by 2026. This initiative will integrate Indigenous knowledge into the academic curriculum of each UQAT department, offering 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.”
