The Board of Governors and President of Huron have inherited Huron as a trust from our predecessors and hold it in trust for our successors.
We are committed to fostering an institution where planning, priorities, and the allocation of resources support the attainment of our strategic directions and where the culture is transparent and accountable to our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends.
We acknowledge that Huron University is located on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak, and Attawandaron 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 whom we recognize as contemporary stewards of the land and vital contributors of our society.
As part of our commitment to reconciliation on the land we share, Huron recently partnered with Indigenous artist Leroy Henry to design and install the Eagle Tree of Peace statue, which is a centrepiece at the Huron University quad. Both Leroy and the Huron community hope the statue can help create an inviting space for Indigenous students who want to pursue post-secondary education.
