Your Voice Matters: Indigenous Strategic Planning Student Consultations

We extend a heartfelt invitation to all University of Windsor Indigenous Students to partake in a pivotal initiative that seeks to shape the trajectory of our University – to indigenize and decolonize the University of Windsor. In alignment with the University’s Aspire Strategic Plan, we are developing the first Indigenous Strategic Plan for the University of Windsor.  The launch of this strategic plan underscores our commitment to nurturing relationships with Indigenous students, staff, and faculty and developing positive relationships with Indigenous Communities.

Your distinct perspectives are highly valued, and we are genuinely excited to hear from you. To facilitate this dialogue, we've crafted a comprehensive questionnaire encompassing a broad spectrum of topics—from personal experiences to constructive suggestions for enhancements. Your input is imperative to ensure that the University of Windsor is a culturally safe environment that respects Indigeneity. 

As a token of appreciation for your time and thoughtful responses, we're pleased to offer $20 e-gift cards to participants who complete the questionnaire. Additionally, we offer one-on-one consultations for those seeking a more in-depth private conversation to answer the questionnaires.

The first consultation session will be held at Turtle Island Aboriginal Education Centre on December 5, 2023, from 12 PM to 2 PM. I will be introducing the purpose of these consultations through a short presentation and our team will be there to assist with the questionnaires.

Additional dates, for student consultations at Turtle Island Aboriginal Education Centre are:

  1. March 4, 2024, 12 – 2:30; and
  2. March 25, 2024, 12 – 2:30

*Dates are subject to change.

Your active participation is vital in steering the future of our University. Join us in this collaborative effort to bring about positive change. We eagerly anticipate your involvement and applaud your commitment to forging a more robust and inclusive University of Windsor.

Warm regards,

Dr. Beverly Jacobs, CM

Senior Advisor to the President on Indigenous Relations and Outreach
