The book club is a way to help students, staff, faculty and the local community gain a better understanding of Canada’s true history from an Indigenous lens. Learning outcomes include:
Learning about Indigenous themes and engage in conversation on different Indigenous perspectives that help with addressing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada report and is part of the University mandate to work towards reconciliation.
Exploring Indigenous themes to create new opportunities for learning and dialogue related to reconciliation across the three campuses amongst faculty, staff, and students.
Building strong foundations and create strong interpersonal skills on campus with faculty, staff, and students that give Indigenous and non-Indigenous students a sense of connection and pride in their affiliation with UTSC.
The Indigenous Book club is a tri-campus initiative started at the UTSC Department of Student Life in collaboration with the UTSC Library, and extended to U of T Libraries and First Nations House this year!
