Indigenous scholars

Covering a wide range of research and study, Indigenous faculty provide a diverse set of experiences and expertise to UM. Many Indigenous faculty produce and share knowledge(s) and research on matters that specifically impact Indigenous communities. Others are role models for Indigenous students and upcoming Indigenous researchers, creating interest in fields of study where Indigenous peoples have been historically underrepresented. All of these contributions are essential in shaping the landscape of learning at UM, as well as transforming the lives of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples and communities.
