Fleming, Trent expand education pathways for Indigenous students

February 23, 2022
Fleming College and Trent University have announced a new partnership that will expand pathways to further education for Indigenous students. The pathways will allow eligible graduates of Fleming’s Ecosystem Management Technology, Environmental Technology, and Fish and Wildlife Technology programs to complete a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Indigenous Environmental Studies in an additional two years. Indigenous students in Fleming’s Early Childhood Education and Educational Support programs will also be able to transfer credits into Trent’s Indigenous Bachelor of Education degree. “The Indigenous-focused degree programs at Trent aim to support generations of Indigenous youth by producing greater numbers of role models,” said Professor David Newhouse, chair of the Chanie Wenjack School of Indigenous Studies at Trent.
