Carleton’s administration has decided to push the development of the school’s Indigenous revitalization strategy to the 2019-20 academic year.
University president Benoit-Antoine Bacon told the Charlatan the decision to change the timeline, which was initially slated to update the policy this year, is a way of ensuring that all stakeholders are included.
“I know from experience that something so ambitious with such a large group doesn’t go as fast as we would want, and I’m okay with that,” he said. “It’s important to do it well than to do it fast.”
“We can take the time that we need to do it well, and the committee wants to talk to people on and off-campus, and when you get to off-campus, it can be more complicated logistically,” he added.
