Cluster Hire


Mount Royal University is proud to announce a cluster hire of tenure-track and tenured positions as part of its commitment to Indigenous communities and in order to advance the University’s Indigenous Strategic Plan.   


Mount Royal University is currently seeking to fill the following positions: 

·         Assistant or Associate Professor, Indigenous Studies

·         Assistant Professor, General Education and Indigenous Studies

·         Assistant Professor, Indigenous Sociology

·         Assistant Professor, Broadcast Media Studies/Journalism


Mount Royal University is situated in an ancient and storied place within the hereditary lands of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot, including the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), and the people of Treaty 7, which includes the Iyarhe Nakoda (including the Bearspaw, Chiniki, and Wesley First Nations), and Tsuut’ina Nations. It is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3. It is a land steeped in ceremony and history that, until recently, was used and occupied exclusively by peoples Indigenous to this place. 

Mount Royal University is committed to doing its part to address the legacy of broken promises and rebuild the relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples in Calgary and across the country. We began the process with a framework for planning in 2012, developed strategies as staff and students, and consulted broadly. The Indigenous Strategic Plan 2016-2021 was approved by the President’s Executive Council in August 2016.

About Mount Royal University

Mount Royal University has carved out a distinct niche by offering smaller class sizes, a robust liberal education and unique undergraduate programs.

Founded in 1910 and located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Mount Royal grew into a vibrant college in the 1930s and became a mid-sized university with a greater focus on bachelor degrees in 2009. Today, more than 13,000 credit students choose from 12 bachelor degrees and 32 majors, as well as certificate and diploma programs.

Our 10-year strategic plan, Learning Together, Leading Together, sets out a vision to provide an exceptional undergraduate educational experience by continuing to grow the number of credit students enrolled and degree programs offered.

Mount Royal University is located in the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of the Treaty 7 region in southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut'ina and the Iyarhe Nakoda. We are situated on land where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. The traditional Blackfoot name of this place is "Mohkinstsis," which we now call the city of Calgary. The city of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation.
