Indigenous Advisory Council (IAC)

An Advisory council that advocates on behalf of Indigenous staff and students

The Indigenous Advisory Council is a strategic body made of Indigenous Staff and Students that provides advice to the senior administration of the university and others. It also advocates for initiatives to be considered by the university.

The Indigenous Council meets regularly to discuss strategic approaches to issues, processes and policies that impact Indigenous peoples across the University. Members of the Council discuss issues from diverse Indigenous perspectives while also bringing forward specialist knowledge and recommendations from their respective units.

Decisions and recommendations are brought forward to appropriate university bodies for consideration, approval and implementation.

If you have an issue or a topic that you wish to be heard by the IAC please send them to ihim@dal.ca.
