Join us for a panel discussion exploring the Indigenous student experience at McGill. Featuring Indigenous Access McGill team members Professor Wanda Gabriel, Ben Geboe, and Professor Nicole Ives, the event will draw on the experiences of current and former students. Discussion will include the success of the School of Social Work's Indigenous Field Course (IDFC 500), which gives students in Social Work, Law, Medicine, and Anthropology first-hand opportunities to learn about Haudenosaunee cultures and worldviews. Now in its 10th year, the 4-week intensive course provides students a holistic approach to learning about Indigenous culture and teaches them to integrate this knowledge into their practice.
Exploring the Indigenous Student Experience is the first event in the School of Social Work's centennial celebrations. To mark this milestone, celebratory treats will be served. Founded in 1918 and supported through its first hundred years by the generosity of donors and alumni, the school provides world-class social work education, generates leading research, and strives for social justice. Homecoming 2018 will launch a year-long centennial celebration with events scheduled throughout the year.
