In this course, students will examine sustainable development initiatives related to Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities and how these initiatives support healthy and sustainable communities through poverty reduction, education, gender equity, and economic growth. This course will also examine the concepts of systems thinking, sustainable development through an analytical lens that involves shared value creation, economic diversification, strategic partnerships, and enhanced business ecosystems. ** Students may register for one or more of the courses within the Indigenous Governance and Public Administration Program without applying to the program.
