The Indigenous Research Support Team (IRST) was launched within Research Services to better support and strengthen Indigenous-related research capacity at the University of Calgary. The intention of the support team is to strengthen and identify existing resources for Indigenous communities and stakeholders, university researchers, and further partners to promote collaborative, reciprocal, and culturally responsive research. IRST serves to provide the opportunity for Indigenous communities to connect with a research body that can help to facilitate and identify the endeavours they would like to explore. IRST will be the point of contact for all university researchers doing any work within the broader Indigenous landscape, including with Indigenous communities and on Indigenous lands.
