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.

Supervisor – Base Camp

BASE CAMP LEAD SUPPORT EXPLORE INSPIRE

A message from the Dean

Supervisors as well as graduate students journey together in a supervisory relationship, building capacity together in the pursuit of great heights. Base Camp resources are supportive of multiple communities -- graduate students, Postdoctoral Fellows, supervisors, and staff – as they collaborate to, investigate, examine, construct, and transform. Base Camp is structured around 4 Peaks: Lead, Support, Explore, and Inspire.

The Supervisor Series is a dimension of Base Camp, focussing knowledge, skills, and capacities of our supervisor community. Building scaffolded learning and discovery for our supervisory community is one means by which we provide wrap-around supports for our graduate students and Postdoctoral Fellows. The 4 Peaks of Base Camp support supervisors through resource construction, collegial exchanges, community engagement, and integration of best practices in graduate and Postdoctoral Fellow supervision.
