The University of Alberta has been working towards implementing the Truth & Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action in thoughtful, meaningful and sustainable ways. The goal is to ensure that the University of Alberta is a welcoming and safe environment for Indigenous students, staff, faculty and community members and that programs and strategies reflect the institutional commitment to engaging Indigenous perspectives.
Reporting to the Executive Director, the Project Coordinator will be accountable for the ongoing administration of the Supporting Indigenous Language Revitalization (SILR): Building Capacity for Community-led Indigenous Language Revitalization in Canada Project. This position will play a central role in communication, coordination and engagement in relation to the structure of the overall Project. The Project Coordinator is both a self-starter and team-player who will champion and support Indigenous language revitalization both within the University and externally. The Project Coordinator will write articles, create announcements, support faculty initiatives, manage website and social media.
The project will be governed and administered by the Office of the Vice-Provost, Indigenous Programming & Research—the mission of this Office is to support the development and implementation of programs, services and initiatives related to Indigenous engagement and transformative practices that respect and honor Indigenous knowledge across the University of Alberta.
