Open Letter to the SFU Community
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has participated in or followed the work of SFU’s Aboriginal Reconciliation Council. We have done our best to summarize and synthesize the feedback that was received. At this stage, ARC invites brief comments about the report regarding potential errors, misrepresentations, or key omissions.
We invite you to visit the ARC website https://www.sfu.ca/reconciliation/report_feedback to provide your comments up until Friday, July 7 at 4:00 PM.
The members of the ARC also wish to emphasize that the ARC Report is only the beginning of opportunity for input and change. For continuing and more extensive feedback, the report is recommending a variety of events and committees including campus-wide conferences and educational campaigns (p. 18), a senior Aboriginal leadership and administration position (p. 46), an Institute for Indigenous Dialogue, Governance, and Empowerment (pp. 44, 53), an Indigenous Curriculum Resource Centre and Review Committee (p. 47), and a community liaison officer (p. 53).
Once again, thank you!
Chris Lewis & Kris Magnusson
