As an important step in the journey to transform to a polytechnic university, Aurora College is currently working to develop the process to establish the Indigenous Knowledge Holders Council, one of three bodies that will make up the new tri-cameral governance structure.  The structure is the first of its kind at a post-secondary institution in Canada, and underscores Aurora College’s commitment to incorporate Indigenous perspectives, values, knowledge and traditions into all areas and business of the institution, in a methodical, strategic, and collaborative manner.

The main purpose of the Council will be to promote policies and operational decisions that foster the success of Indigenous students and staff, and the overall success of Aurora College. It is anticipated to be in place in March 2024.
