OUSA is currently in the process of rewriting our Indigenous Students policy paper, with the intent to publish the paper in Fall 2021 under the continued leadership and direction of Indigenous student authors . We are taking a new approach that centres Indigenous student leadership and focuses on relationship building to rebuild past harms that are the result of a lack of collaboration, consultation, and inclusion of Indigenous students in OUSA’s policy development and decision-making processes.
This new approach, led by a team of Indigenous student authors, will guide the development of OUSA’s policy stance and advocacy efforts to address concerns faced by Indigenous students. Read the Report to the General Assembly on the Status of the Indigenous Students Policy Paper, presented in March 2021, to learn more about the process we’re taking and the work done by the authorship team.
