Appointment of Kim Martin as the Dean of Indigenous Education

​It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of Kim Martin as the Dean of Indigenous Education, effective September 12.

Kim Martin is a John Abbott College alum and a faculty member of the Continuing Education Nursing program. She has a background in Nursing and over a decade of experience in leadership and management as a Clinical Coordinator and Team Leader.  A member of the Mohawk community of Kahnawake, she has been involved with volunteer work for the Kateri Memorial Hospital Foundation, has written for the Eastern Door newspaper and has been involved with community initiatives related to issues facing community students.  Since joining John Abbott as a Nursing instructor, she has collaborated with students and educators from various Indigenous communities to help identify and address barriers to education, cultural safety, and curriculum through her involvement in John Abbott College’s ReconciliAction Committee,  the Intercollegiate Decolonization Network, and through consulting as a textbook reviewer for Elsevier. As Dean of Indigenous Education, Kim hopes to continue her work as an advocate of Indigenous education, addressing barriers to education, as well as promoting the health and well-being of Indigenous students.

Please join us in welcoming Kim to the Program Deans’ Office and wishing her success as she begins her new role.

Teresa Berghello, Academic Dean and John Halpin, Director General
