CAUT is sponsoring its 4th Forum for Aboriginal Academic Staff which will be held November 1-3, 2013 at the Courtyard by Marriott Toronto Downtown. The conference is organized with the guidance of CAUT’s Working Group on Aboriginal Post-Secondary Education. This will be an opportunity for Aboriginal academic staff from across Canada to get together to share information, discuss issues of common interest and provide advice to CAUT and our member associations. More details can be found at http://events.caut.ca/aboriginal-2013/
At a recent meeting of the USFA Executive Committee, a motion was passed to approve the expenditure of funds to send up to three USFA members, who self-identify as Aboriginal, to this forum. The three people sponsored by USFA will be asked to provide an oral or written report to the Executive Committee or general membership of the USFA at a mutually agreeable time following the forum.
If you are interested in attending as a member of the USFA, you are invited to apply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 13, 2013. Those selected for USFA support to attend the forum will be determined by the USFA Member Development Committee.
