University of Lethbridge adopts Iniskim Governance Process – UNews

Developed under the guidance of Dr. Leroy Little Bear (BASc (BA) ’72, LLD ’04) and the Elders in Residence, the Iniskim Governance Process outlines how ULethbridge will meet the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) Calls to Action. The process was approved by the ULethbridge Board of Governors on Thursday, April 14, 2022.
