The name UPROOT comes from what, how, and why we are doing this work. We are uprooting colonial processes and systemic barriers in our efforts to support decolonization and Indigenization. We expect our students to uproot their own perceived cultural and social biases, as part of their self-journey in reconciliation. Finally, our team understands and acknowledges deep-seeded or rooted issues of our colonial past in order to move towards respect, responsibility, relevance and reciprocity with community partners.
