The University of Calgary (UCalgary), located in the heart of Southern Alberta, both acknowledges and pays tribute to the traditional territories of the peoples of Treaty 7, which include the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprised of the Siksika, the Piikani, and the Kainai First Nations) as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Goodstoney First Nations). The university recognizes that the City of Calgary is also home to Region III of the Métis Nation of Alberta. By virtue of the signing of Treaty 7 in 1877, the university recognizes that we are all treaty people. The City of Calgary is home to diverse communities. Together, we share this land, strive to live together, learn together, walk together, and grow together “in a good way.”
The University of Calgary recognizes the importance of creating and maintaining a welcoming and equitable environment that enables every member of our campus to thrive. The Inclusive Excellence Cluster Hiring Initiative has been launched to advance and embed the institution’s commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility, Indigenous engagement, and inclusive excellence. This initiative, which was developed in accordance with Section 10.1 of the Alberta Human Rights Act, is a key step to ameliorate the under-representation of members of equity deserving groups at the university, to enhance the conditions of disadvantaged groups, to build a critical mass of scholars who reflect the diversity of our student body and the broader community, to advance epistemic pluralism and the creation of new knowledges and ways of knowing, and to broaden the culture of inclusivity and engagement.
