A Guide for Front-Line Staff, Student Services, and Advisors explores relationships between the institution, students, and Indigenous communities. These relationships are interconnected and are guided by shared values of Indigenization to both improve the educational and employment experiences of all students, faculty, and staff across the institution. It also explores how Elders, Indigenous community members, and community education partners are heard and included in the educational experience. This guide reflects a holistic way to serve Indigenous students.

Rohene Bouajram, BCcampus. An environmental scan providing a snapshot of resources, tools, and training available at 25 BC post-secondary institutions and 4 BC-based organizations focused on social justice, equity, anti-racism and anti-hate work.
Individuals are welcome to use the resources to begin or expand their journey of learning anti-racism and anti-hate work recognizing that this is a continuous journey of learning and unlearning. Using the emergent framework in the scan and reflective questions, individuals can reflect on how to move from awareness to intentional and inspired action to drive meaningful and systemic change in their roles, departments and institutions.
The Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) promotes the awareness and adoption of open educational policies, practices, and resources. We believe that these practices will promote equitable access to education, particularly for underserved students while supporting academic freedom and faculty choice of openly licensed curriculum materials.
