Kevin Lamoureux, Associate Vice President (AVP) Indigenous Affairs, has decided to focus his efforts on a PhD at the University of Manitoba and will return to the Faculty of Education, effective January 1, 2019.

“I would like to thank Kevin for his time as AVP Indigenous Affairs, acknowledge the good work that he has done and congratulate him for choosing to complete a PhD” said Dr. Annette Trimbee, President and Vice-Chancellor. “If you have ever heard Kevin speak, you know that he is a very gifted public academic. Through that gift, Kevin has inspired thousands of leaders in our K-12 systems, universities, and business and arts communities to both reflect and act on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.”

“Being a part of the senior leadership team at UWinnipeg has been more than just a great job; it has been transformative. UWinnipeg is a leading university in Canada in many respects and I am proud to have made a contribution to reconciliation in this role,” said Kevin Lamoureux.

UWinnipeg will be moving forward with the hiring of a new AVP Indigenous Engagement, who will work in partnership with the Indigenous Academic lead and other members of the senior leadership team, the UWinnipeg community, and Indigenous people to continue to advance reconciliation.

Located on Treaty 1 land in the heart of the Métis Nation, UWinnipeg embraces its role as a leader in reconciliation with Indigenous people. UWinnipeg was one of the first universities in the country to adopt an Indigenous Course Requirement, in keeping with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, and has prioritized “Indigenization” as one of its Strategic Directions.
