Our meaning of place: Indigenous Naming Survey Results – SFU News

August 02, 2023

A survey this past spring surfaced the unique vibrancy of SFU’s three campuses from the university community to inspire the addition of Indigenous campus names to existing campus names.

To help inform this work, students, faculty, staff and alumni were invited to participate in a two-question survey during the month of May which asked: “What word(s) come to mind when you think about what is special about or at the essence of each of SFU’s three campuses?” and “Is there anything else you would like to share with the Indigenous Naming Committee (INC)?”

Aligned with the key pillar of upholding Truth and Reconciliation in the What’s Next: SFU Strategy, along with the Pathways report, the INC is steering various revitalization projects at the university related to Indigenous Naming, responding to Call to Action 5 of the Walk this Path with Us Report.
