University College of the North (UCN) celebrates 20 years in operation on July 1.
As part of the celebration, three UCN professors, Dr. Keith Hyde, Dr. Greg Stott, and Dr. Hendrik Warnar-Brown are writing a book about UCN's history and its significance in northern Manitoba.
“Over the course of decades, many Indigenous and northern Manitobans advocated for the creation of an independent degree-granting institution to be located in the north,” said Dr. Hyde.
The history of UCN book project is in the early stages of development. Research ethics applications, funding applications, and publisher identification are forthcoming.
“Stories about the creation of UCN are incredibly valuable, and we want to ensure that those experiences are documented before that history is lost,” noted Dr. Stott.
