U of G’s new bachelor of Indigenous environmental science was featured in University Affairs magazine for an article examining how Indigenous researchers are working together with universities and non-Indigenous researchers to shape the future of environmental sciences.

Dr. Jesse Popp, who recently joined U of G’s School of Environmental Sciences as OAC Chair in Indigenous Environmental Science, told the magazine that the approach to combine Indigenous and non-Indigenous practice and create new models of collaborative research supports inclusion and diversity which, the article noted, “makes science much better as a whole.”
