Integrated Learning at St. Catherine University is a multidimensional expression of an active liberal arts pedagogy. Located at the intersection of creative energy and critical reflection, the Integrated Learning Series is one way we partner academics with activism, the paper with the performance, and the campus with the community. It is the array of courses, activities, speakers, events, performances, and exhibitions that coalesce into our ways of knowing. The Integrated Learning Series is the web that binds our learning experiences together and the narratives that connect our collective community.

The Integrated Learning Series Committee invites you to our next series. Over a two-year cycle, we will explore and discuss the conditions for, and the implications of, Indigenous thought leadership.
The REDress Project
October 23–November 14, 2021
Campus quad (outdoors)
The REDress Project is an installation art project created by Métis artist Jaime Black. This outdoor exhibition is organized in collaboration with The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery and The O'Shaughnessy.
The installation consists of red dresses suspended in public spaces to mark the absence and evoke the presence of Indigenous women and girls who have gone missing or been murdered.
Indigenous women face higher rates of violence than any other cultural group in Canada and the United States. Indigenous families and communities have been advocating for generations to make changes to the colonial system that often treat the perpetrators of this violence with impunity. The REDress Project works to create space for families of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Persons (MMIP) and their supporters to tell their stories and to find solidarity in the struggle to protect the rights of Indigenous women and girls. The project provides a space to hear from frontline community workers, Indigenous women academics, elders and knowledge keepers on how we can work together as a community to bring justice to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) and their families.
