UBC’s Sauder School of Business and UBC Okanagan’s School of Nursing are both introducing Indigenous content into curriculum. Sauder has recently hired Associate Dean Amie Wolf, who will develop First Nations programming as part of a larger effort in the business school to focus on values, ethics, and social responsibility. Wolf and other Sauder officials said that Indigenous awareness is crucial to the development of modern business students. Likewise, UBCO revealed new curriculum this week that teaches nursing students how to deliver culturally respectful treatment to First Nations patients. Both of these initiatives are in alignment with recommendations from the recent report from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).
