This role will appeal to those who enjoy teaching from an Indigenous perspective in intimate and interactive class settings with a strong commitment to research and community service within Aboriginal communities.

The Organization:
With approximately 1,200 students and over 45 full-time faculty at three campuses, First Nations University provides an opportunity for students of all nations to learn in an environment of First Nations cultures and values. With a 37 year history, the University continues to uphold its mission of enhancing the quality of life, and to preserve, protect and interpret the history, language, culture and artistic heritage of First Nations people. The University is a unique place of learning specializing in Indigenous knowledge and providing post-secondary education for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students alike within a culturally supportive environment. First Nations University is a federated college of the University of Regina, and its academic programs are accredited through that institution.
