This community read seeks to provide education and insight to university stakeholders and community members about the barriers that Indigenous people face with the aim of transforming our education system at the University of Utah to support the goals of Indigenous students. In this community read, participants will be invited to explore Indigenous knowledge systems, values, and experiences, with the goal of challenging the colonial systems that devalue such worldviews, and ultimately serve to keep Indigenous people out of intellectual and professional spaces. Specifically, participants will be invited to reflect on differences between western systems of knowledge production and Indigenous knowledge systems, explore barriers to indigenous people accessing higher education, and explore ways to support indigenous people in dismantling barriers through developing a praxis of survivance.
Co-Sponsors: Office of Health Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, and the University Counseling Center’s Systems Intervention Project
