This project aims to strengthen the capacity of faculty to advance equity, diversity, inclusion, and indigenization in higher education. Specifically, the project involves co-creating open-access bilingual curricula based on the experiences of BIPOC* individuals in classrooms, workplaces, and communities in the Outaouais region.
This project will have a two-fold impact on students. On the one hand, it will help BIPOC students feel seen and heard; on the other hand, it will help non-BIPOC students learn to connect and act as allies of the BIPOC community.
*BIPOC: (Black, Indigenous, and people of colour).
