Aboriginal Research Collaborations At Dal

Given Dalhousie’s location in the heart of Mi’kmaq territory, it’s perhaps not surprising to find a number of research projects taking place with Aboriginal and Indigenous communities. What might be surprising, though, are their variety — and the degree to which they span various communities. Research with Aboriginal and Indigenous communities takes place in nine of Dal’s 12 faculties, with the largest number of projects in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Health Professions. In total, more than 50 researchers along with graduate students and staff are engaged in direct and significant research partnership with Aboriginal and Indigenous communities.
