Pulling Together guides are the result of the Indigenization Project, a collaboration between BCcampus and the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. The project was supported by a steering committee of Indigenous education leaders from BC universities, colleges, and institutes, the First Nations Education Steering Committee, the Indigenous Adult and Higher Learning Association, and Métis Nation BC. These guides are intended to support the systemic change occurring across post-secondary institutions through Indigenization, decolonization, and reconciliation.
The editions likely to be of most interest in the Faculty of Education include Pulling Together: A Guide for Teachers and Instructors, and Pulling Together: Manitoba Foundations Guide (Brandon Edition).
