  • supporting the inclusion of Indigenous content and context, as well as teaching and learning methods and perspectives;
  • mentoring teaching, learning, and research in Indigenous andragogy and related areas, and 
  • supporting faculty as they integrate Indigenous worldviews with Western perspectives.
