CUASA / CU Joint Statement on Indigenous Hiring

Carleton University and Carleton University Academic Staff Association acknowledge and respect the Algonquin people, traditional custodians of the land on which the Carleton University campus is situated and where our collective agreement was bargained.

On October 12, 2018, President Benoit-Antoine Bacon announced Carleton University’s commitment to revitalize the University’s Strategic Indigenous Initiatives and strengthen its relationships with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities, in keeping with the spirit of the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

Carleton University and Carleton University Academic Staff Association (CUASA) are honoured to work in partnership toward the goal of recruiting ten additional Indigenous tenure-track faculty members over the next two years.

A strong and inspiring complement of Indigenous faculty members will bring invaluable Indigenous knowledge, research, ways of knowing, and perspectives to the Carleton community across a diversity of disciplines, schools, and departments. Our faculty will better reflect the experiences and cultures of our student body and the population at-large, thus enhancing and enriching mentorship of students and fostering valuable new community partnerships.

The University and the Association are proud to collaborate on this initiative to deepen the quality and diversity of scholarship in our institution.
