For more information about this opportunity, please see the posting at

For over 30-years the Cultural Resource Management Programs in the Division
of Continuing Studies have been offering educational opportunities to
emerging and midcareer professional in the museum, heritage and cultural
sector. Current programs include the Diploma in Cultural Resource
Management, and Professional Specialization Certificates in Collections
Management, and Visitor and Community Engagement. In addition, online and
face-to-face courses can be taken can be taken for credit or non-credit and
are accessed by undergraduate, graduate and professional learners.

>From 1992 – 1995, the Cultural Resource Management Program ran an
Aboriginal Cultural Stewardship in partnership with the First Peoples
Cultural Council and the Royal BC Museum. This successful program provided
culturally appropriate training that met the needs of Indigenous learners,
and provided a foundation for work within the cultural sector.

In response to the ongoing need for training in Indigenous cultural
heritage, and encouraged by UVic’s Indigenous Plan, the TRC Calls to Action
for the museum and heritage sector, and the United National Declaration on
the Rights of Indigenous People, we are proposing development of
specialized training in Indigenous Cultural Stewardship. Both Indigenous
and non-Indigenous professionals in the cultural sector are looking to
develop the required knowledge and skills to support the management,
repatriation, preservation and interpretation of Indigenous cultural
heritage. Responding to this need, we will develop a new course within the
Cultural Resource Management Program (CRMP) on Indigenous Cultural
Stewardship that will be foundational and overarching.

Please submit your expression of interest by *November 1, 2021 at 4pm PST*.

Kind regards,


*Maxine Reitsma*
