YukonU announces inaugural Research Chair in Northern Governance

News

Yukon University has established a Research Chair in Northern Governance, thanks to a $1M gift from the real estate company Northern Vision Development (NVD). The NVD funding will support the research chair position for ten years. The Chair will be held by Dr Rebecca Major, a M├ętis scholar who specializes in the preservation and growth of knowledge in northern governance. “It is particularly exciting that the focus of this role is on northern Indigenous governance,” said Major. “Yukon First Nations have much to offer; they’ve moved the dial on modern relationships and I look forward to learning, and working together.”
