|Title||Building Foundations for Success in Decolonization and Indigenization within Pharmacy-focused Academic Programs in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences|
Building Foundations, proposes to use collaborative, student-led and Indigenous-partnered engagement to explore how the Academic Portfolio of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences can operationalize recommendations directed toward health education programs, outlined in documents such as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, In Plain Sight, United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), UBC’s Indigenous Strategic Plan, and the Faculty’s draft Underserved Communities Strategic Plan.
However critical, those documents do not provide concrete pathways for how to action change. Starting with the Faculty’s pharmacy programs and their supporting units, this initiative seeks to build relationships with Indigenous partners to identify infrastructure, resources, processes, and capacity required to operationalize decolonization and Indigenization of policies, practices, and curriculum.
Building the foundation for long-term implementation and evaluation, this initiative will deeply impact student learning experiences, build relationships with Indigenous communities, and change attitudes as decolonization and Indigenization becomes overtly embraced in the Faculty.
