Camosun's Indigenization plan is aligned with BC's Aboriginal Post-secondary Education and Training Policy Framework and Action Plan, 2012. The vision, goals, actions, and planning contexts of the initiative are addressed in the Indigenization plan, entitled Inspiring Relationships.
Indigenization is a strong indicator of Camosun’s leadership role in regards to Indigenous adult education in British Columbia and beyond. Depicted as a four corner-post house model, Indigenization is reflective of the traditional longhouses of the Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples upon whose territories the college resides.
Indigenization broadens the college's capacity to recognize, respect, acknowledge and integrate Indigenous worldviews by:
- making the institution more welcoming and relevant to Aboriginal learners;
- preparing non-Indigenous students, graduates, and employees to better understand and co-exist with Indigenous peoples;
- demonstrating Camosun’s capacity for creativity, innovation, and imagination, and
- enhancing Camosun’s goal to be a college of life-changing learning.
