Truth and Reconciliation. University of Toronto is contemplating recommendations to increase the number of indigenous students, hire more indigenous faculty, establish indigenous spaces on its campus, and boost indigenous curriculum. As reported in a recent Toronto Star article, the U of T’s Truth and Reconciliation Steering Committee recently completed a 125-page report which includes recommendations prompted by the recent Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) report. Some of the TRC report recommendations were directed squarely at post-secondary education institutions in Canada; U of T is one of several Canadian universities considering or implementing positive changes in response to the TRC.
