The University of Toronto (U of T) has recognized that Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples is an important and necessary undertaking and is determined to implement the 34 Calls to Action directly related to education contained within the 94 Calls to Action in the Truth and Reconciliation Final Report. The Office of Indigenous Initiatives (OII) supports and guides the U of T community as it continues to work towards reconciliation. Efforts are directed towards listening, coordinating, advising, and collaborating with academic and non-academic communities in addressing the Calls to Action. OII intersects with areas such as teaching and learning, student experience, Faculty and staff recruitment and engagement, and community-based research. The Office also conducts a regular environmental scan, produces a report to establish the impact and progress of Indigenous Initiatives on campus, and manages the activities of the Council of Indigenous Initiatives.
The Office of Indigenous Initiatives currently offers Indigenous Cultural Competency Training across all three campuses. The Indigenous Training Assistant will work towards supporting and promoting Indigenous training opportunities for students, faculty, librarians, and staff across all three campuses (virtual and in-person training sessions).
