What does decolonizing post-secondary education look like? In today’s episode of Perspectives on Campus, Zamir and Alyssa discuss the tricultural mandate at Laurentian University.
As several universities work to indigenize and decolonize post-secondary education, Laurentian University has a well-established tricultural mandate to support indigenous communities.
To figure out how this mandate is implemented, Zamir sits down with Alyssa, an Ojibwe woman and student leader at Laurentian. The two discuss Laurentian's progress towards honouring Indigenous culture and look at what can be done to strengthen the mandate.
