Successes and Challenges of the University of Winnipeg Education Centre

Community Engagement Research

By Paul DePasquale

This study examines the University of Winnipeg Education Centre’s (WEC) successes and challenges. The history and contribution of WEC is deeper and richer than the institutional memory acknowledges. WEC has long reflected “Indigenized” values and practices in teacher education. Various institutional and systemic forces—Eurocentric pressures outside WEC—present considerable challenges for students. Despite strong supports, and excellent and caring faculty and staff, these challenges keep the program from making its fullest contribution to the education and well-being of its student teachers, and possibly to that of their young students in Manitoba.
