The University of Manitoba (UM) campuses are located on original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. Every day, UM learns from Indigenous students, staff and faculty as we move toward the kind of future we seek to create–one that advances reconciliation, builds deeper connections and brings people of all nations together. UM campuses are uniquely strengthened by Indigenous student perspectives, and we look forward to seeing how the 2021 graduates continue to contribute to the cultural, social and economic wellbeing of our nations, province and country. Congratulations Mamhtákosiwin Gigii-minojigem Yawashte Kischi-iteyhta- mashchohin Félicitations From the Chancellor These extraordinary times have forged extraordinary students. To the Class of 2021, be proud of what you have accomplished, and welcome to our vibrant alumni community. Getting here required the support of many, and you have also likely offered support to others. Never forget how good it felt to help, and to be helped. This pandemic will leave many legacies, may one of them be more kindness. Anne Mahon, Chancellor From the President To this graduating class of more than 4,000 health professionals, engineers, teachers, artists, social workers, scientists and critical thinkers, including the largest cohort of Indigenous graduates—582—in UM's history: In response to a global crisis, you have demonstrated a remarkable commitment to care for others. As the world changes rapidly, you will continue to reshape society with your sense of global justice, your ideas and your passions. On behalf of UM, thank you for your impact and all that you will go on to accomplish. Dr. Michael Benarroch, President and Vice-Chancellor Photo of Michael Benarroch by Ms. Alia Youssef
