Indigenous Alumni Survey 

The Indigenous Alumni Survey seeks to improve the cultural safety supports, and for acknowledging, understanding and integrating Indigenous knowledge across Royal Roads University. The goals were to build an accurate understanding of how Indigenous students experience Royal Roads University; appropriate language to use in relation to Indigenous issues; identify strengths in current Royal Roads University programs for Indigenous students; challenges and barriers to Indigenous students experiencing cultural safety; develop new approaches to supporting Indigenous students; and identify appropriate directions for curriculum development and enhancing the overall learning experience for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, including Indigenous ways of being, doing and knowing within the School of Leadership Studies. The development of knowledge, and identification of other supports to create a learning experience that embraces diversity in knowledge production across the University, will benefit both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. Indigenous students will benefit from a more meaningful and relevant educational experience in seeing their cultures reflected in the course content and process. This will provide an opportunity for innovative knowledge creation concerning cultural safety for students in post-secondary, graduate education in Canada, and particularly, in online and blended programs, such as those at Royal Roads University. 

Please bring your lunch. Cookies and coffee will be provided.
