Memorial's new Policy on Research Impacting Indigenous Groups
Memorial’s new policy on Research Impacting Indigenous Groups has been drafted by a working group of three people recommended by the President’s Advisory Committee on Aboriginal Affairs: Dr. Max Liboiron (Michif), Associate Vice-President (Indigenous Research) in St. John’s; Kelly Anne Butler (Mi’kmaw), Student Affairs Officer-Aboriginal Affairs at Grenfell Campus; and Michele Wood (Inuk), community member in Labrador.
The draft is based on extensive consultations conducted in 2018 and 2019. This committee reports to the President’s Advisory Committee on Aboriginal Affairs and is following Memorial’s policy procedures.
The policy was endorsed by Senate on June 9. It is going to the Board of Regents for approval on July 9.
