On behalf of Carleton University, we are pleased to provide an update on the Kinàmàgawin strategy as a way to showcase the collective work that has been undertaken to address its 41 Calls to Action since the 2022 progress report.

This report represents significant collective actions that have been undertaken by our colleagues across the University to make Carleton a safe and welcoming space for
Indigenous students, staff and faculty.

These actions continue to be complemented by a $2.5 million donation from the Joyce Family Foundation—matched by an additional $2.5 million from the University—which has allowed us to mobilize many of our intentions.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to members of the Carleton University Strategic Indigenous Initiatives Committee (CUSIIC), the Indigenous Education Council and the Algonquin and Inuit Advisory Councils, who were integral to the development of the Kinàmàgawin report and who continue to be deeply committed to supporting Indigenous students and integrating Indigenous knowledge and teaching and learning practices. We are immensely grateful for your guidance and support in this important work.

We would also like to formally acknowledge the many contributions of former Provost and VicePresident (Academic) Jerry Tomberlin as he was instrumental in co leading the Carleton University Strategic Indigenous Initiatives Committee (CUSIIC) from 2018 to 2023.

We wish to thank all members of the Carleton community for their work in this important area and to reinforce our commitment to continuing to make progress on the work that remains to be done.
