We understand our responsibility to contribute to global society derives from our commitment to serve our local communities. In no small part by honouring our commitments to truth and reconciliation with the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples in Canada, we hope not to replicate the histories and systems of colonization within our global aspirations.—Dr. Murali Chandrashekaran, UBC Vice-Provost, International
