We are interested in the history of the land occupied by the campus – the indigenous history, the settler history, the initial acquisition of the land by the province and then the university. The relationship between the university and the land involves community relations of all kinds and has influenced the nature and development of programs.
We are interested in the stories of all groups within the our campus community – faculty, students and staff. We are focusing on diversity broadly defined, student life, identity and how things have changed overtime.
There are many issues that draw our attention in relation to the evolution of our institution – the changing role of technology, the influence of the changing political and economic conditions on enrollment and program development, changing governance and management structures influenced by the struggle for greater autonomy.
