U of T looking to hire more indigenous faculty and staff following TRC call to action


The University of Toronto is hoping to hire more Indigenous faculty and staff, along with bolstering the school’s recruitment of Indigenous students, in response to recommendations made in 2015 by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

A U of T committee produced a 125-page report this month with 34 recommendations ranging from establishing Indigenous spaces on campus to offering cultural and ethics training to researchers wanting to work in Indigenous communities.
