Our Faculty

Master’s in Development Practice (MDP) in Indigenous Development

Our graduate program is one in which the mentoring relationship between student and professor is vital. Our MDP in Indigenous Development faculty are drawn from diverse departments as well as from the world of development practice. Our select Faculty and practitioners are invited to teach in the program given their extensive knowledge and experience working with Indigenous peoples and their familiarity with the complexities of Indigenous development.

Many are of Indigenous origins and bring sensitivity, personal experience, and expertise to share with you. All instructors in the program share a strong commitment to the personal and professional growth of your future development.
