Professor Emerita Dr. Cheryl Bartlett, has been named the recipient of the 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award at the University of Alberta.
Dr. Bartlett completed her Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Integrative Science at Cape Breton University in 2013. Integrative Science is the concept pioneered at CBU, in conjunction with Aboriginal Elders and educators, by which Indigenous and Western worldviews in science and education are brought together for the benefit of all people. "My research program sits at the nexus of science, culture, and society", says Dr. Bartlett. "It serves an overall, two-fold, long-term goal: to help Aboriginal individuals and Indigenous knowledges become increasingly and actively involved in science in the 21st century, and to help mainstream science better engage with Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing."
Congratulations, Dr. Bartlett!
