Leaders’ Dialogue Series: On Making a Difference for Good

Dr. Jo-ann Archibald

in dialogue with graduate students

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Graduate Student Centre, Point Grey Campus

Free Admission

Please join us for the second of a series of informal dialogues over pizza where we explore the hearts and minds of leaders in our midst who are making a difference for good in the world.  How do they define ‘good’ or ‘success’?  What are the important issues of our time, and how can they be addressed?  What motivates them? What have they learned about leadership?

Our guest, Dr. Jo-ann Archibald (Q’um Q’um Xiiem), from the Stó:lō Nation has dedicated her life to advancing Aboriginal education at every level.  She developed the first curriculum on the culture of the Stó:lō people for elementary and secondary students and has conducted research and written extensively on indigenous knowledge systems, storywork/oral tradition, and transformative education.  At UBC, Dr. Archibald has held the positions of Director of the Native Indian Teacher Education (NITEP), Ts`’kel graduate advisor, and Director of the First Nations House of Learning. She is currently a Professor and Associate Dean for Indigenous Education in the Faculty of Education.

Dr. Archibald will be introduced by Dr. Susan Porter, Associate Dean in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, and interviewed by PhD graduate students Alannah Earl Young (Educational Studies) and Geoffrey Carr (Art History, Visual Art, and Theory), with opportunities for questions from the audience.

Location: Graduate Student Centre, 6371 Crescent Rd, UBC, Point Grey campus.
