Welcome to Season 2 of Voice of the Union!
Marina Banister and Ilya Ushakov host this episode, our first one back for the 2017/18 academic year! Marina sits down with Shane Scott, the UASU VP Academic, to discuss USRIs; Ilya interviews David Kim about the work our events team has been up to this fall; and Marina talks to STRIDE mentors Alex Hammond and Mariah Walsh.
We would like to respectfully acknowledge that our University and our Students' Union are located on Treaty 6 Territory. We are grateful to be on Cree, Saulteaux, Métis, Blackfoot, and Nakota Sioux territory; specifically the ancestral space of the Papaschase Cree. These Nations are our family, friends, faculty, staff, students, and peers. As members of the University of Alberta Students' Union, we honour the nation-to-nation treaty relationship. We aspire for our learning, research, teaching, and governance to acknowledge and work towards the decolonization of Indigenous knowledges and traditions.
Music from Ben Sound.
