Open Consultations on New Indigenous Research Consent Requirement
Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2:30-4 p.m.
Members of the university community are invited to attend this open consultation session focused on ensuring Memorial’s new Indigenous research consent process meets the needs of researchers and communities. The session is hosted by Dr. Max Liboiron, associate vice-president (Indigenous Research) pro tempore on behalf of the Office of the Vice-President (Research). As announced on Dec. 3, 2018, Memorial will be updating research application and awards processes across the university starting July 1, 2019. This update will entail ensuring that researchers have consent from Indigenous governing bodies or groups for research done on Indigenous land and/or on Indigenous peoples, languages and cultures.

A FAQ resource to supplement the in-person session is available here: www.mun.ca/research/Indigenous/.
