‘(Re)Imagining Indigenous-Centred UBC Campus Recreation’: Successful ‘Campus as a Living Lab’ Grant application (Led by Dr. Jan Hare and CSS Leadership Team Member Dr. Moss Norman)
Congratulations to Dr. Jan Hare (Indigenous Education) and CSS Leadership Team Member Dr. Moss Norman (Kinesiology) on receiving Campus as a Living Lab (CLL) funding for their project ‘(Re)Imagining Indigenous-Centred UBC Campus Recreation’! The Centre for Sport and Sustainability is a confirmed partner for the project, alongside Physical and Health Education Canada, and Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Office. The project team also includes Drs Tricia Logan, Paul Whitinui, Rosalin Miles, Darren Warburton, LeAnne Petherick, Shannon Bredin, Laurie Ford and Alyssa Reyes, and will involve a network of staff, students, faculty and community individuals and organisations to guide and inform the development of a framework for socially and culturally sustainable Indigenous-centred campus recreation.
The project, which was one of four projects to receive funding out of 35 applications, will receive $42,308 to put towards its goals of responding to calls to action emerging from UBC’s Indigenous Strategic Plan (ISP). The overarching objective of the project is to “decolonize campus space and advance and support Indigenous self-determination through socially and culturally sustainable campus recreation” (CLL website).
