Algonquin, Cambrian partner on researching PSE barriers for Indigenous students

November 30, 2016

Algonquin College and Cambrian College have partnered to work with Indigenous communities to research the barriers facing Indigenous students at both institutions. The Indigenous Student Performance Success Program will strive to identify the factors that are more likely to help or hinder Indigenous students looking to pursue PSE at either school. “Our joint focus will be especially useful in terms of understanding student success, which is critical in terms of making plans for the future for all of our campuses,” said Algonquin President Cheryl Jensen. Cambrian President Bill Best added that the colleges “have been collaborating and sharing best practices in attracting and supporting Indigenous students from diverse regions and communities for some time now. We are pleased to sign an agreement that will formalize our collaboration in support of our shared goals.” Algonquin | Cambrian
