Reconciliation and the Academy: Experience at a Small Institution in Northern Manitoba
Smith, Dan
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n183 p61-81 2017
This article accepts a definition of reconciliation that includes a need for fundamental change in society. The article argues that "knowledge" is critical to the business of the academic enterprise and that the relationship the academy has with knowledge is fundamental; for the academy to truly reconcile, then, changing that relationship is essential. This article describes the experiences of University College of the North as it undertakes reconciliation and how it is seeking to redefine its relationship with knowledge within the context of a larger and westernized post-secondary environment.
