Our People and Research

Our Programs

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that Western University is located on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek (Ah-nish-in-a-bek), Haudenosaunee (Ho-den-no-show-nee), Lūnaapéewak (Len-ahpay- wuk) and Attawandaron (Add-a-won-da-run) peoples, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant Wampum. This land continues to be home to diverse Indigenous peoples (e.g. First Nations, Métis and Inuit) whom we recognize as contemporary stewards of the land and vital contributors of our society.

Our Commitment to Equity

The Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing recognizes the inequities experienced on our campus, including within our School. These inequities are supported by institutional structures. Alongside this recognition is the acknowledgement of multiple and intersecting forms of oppression (racism, ableism, heteronormativity, gender, age etc.) that shape peoples’ educational, work, and life experiences both on and off campus. The Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing is committed to addressing all forms of oppression by engaging in transformative action to create a culture in which the principles of equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization (EDID) can be fully realized in policy and practice within the School.
