Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Upcoming Sessions

Research Progression and it’s reporting are a mechanism to ensure that the student’s research is moving forward at an agreed pace.  It is an opportunity to check in, provide valuable feedback and agree next steps.  It allows both parties to identify any issues and discuss expectations and possible solutions.  The Progress Report is an official records that protects both parties in the process.  A Progress report should be filed at the end of each semester in which the graduate student is conducting research.

SGPS will be running a series of  Wednesday virtual sessions on Research Progression aimed at supporting our graduate faculty members.  This event is open to all faculty with graduate faculty appointment.  Please email shelly.windsor@ontariotechu.ca for more information, including the joining information.
