Strong values to build better futures

Our vision and mission build on our reputation for excellence in teaching, for Indigenous-led and community-based research, as well as national and global projects. Our mission is to engage and innovate for just, equitable, decolonial, and sustainable futures. 

HSD has a long history of teaching Indigenous specializations and recruits more Indigenous students and faculty with each passing year. We are also pioneers in distance education and early adopters to online teaching. We currently offer seven undergraduate programs and 18 graduate programs across our seven academic units.
