Two Assistant Professors & One Associate Professor in Indigenous Governance
University of Victoria
The Indigenous Governance Program (IGOV) is part of the Faculty of Human and Social Development (HSD), including the Schools of Health Information Science, Social Work, Public Administration, Public Health & Social Policy, Child and Youth Care, and Nursing as well as the Indigenous Governance Program. HSD is home to a diverse community of faculty, staff and students. We have a long history of local and global leadership in community-engaged research, Indigenous scholarship, community and government partnerships, and innovative graduate and undergraduate programs. Our graduates attain academic credentials to engage in important intellectual and practical work across a diverse array of Indigenous research, policy, practice and leadership contexts.
The Indigenous Governance Program offers a Master of Arts in Indigenous Governance (MAIG), a Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.) by Special Arrangement and a number of undergraduate courses focusing on Indigenous Governance. Additionally, the Indigenous Governance Program along with the Faculty of Law and Department of Political Science are partners in the Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Nationhood. Our programming, which engages Indigenous and non-indigenous students, is recognized worldwide for its accountability and relevance to Indigenous communities. IGOV graduates are employed in academic professions, professional research and policy analysis positions, and as leaders in community and government organizations.
We seek Indigenous governance scholars committed to working in partnership with Coast Salish Indigenous communities and international partners from a critical Indigenous gender analysis perspective.
All members of the recruitment committee are Indigenous senior academics who have strong Indigenous scholarship in governance, health and wellbeing, feminism, gender and sexuality, masculinities, oralities and disabilities.
