FSIN, USask partner on support for First Nations students

February 8, 2017

The University of Saskatchewan has signed an agreement with the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations that will see the two work together to improve the academic success of First Nations students. The agreement also commits the USask president and FSIN Chief to each annually present the initiatives that their organization or institution has undertaken to support and serve Indigenous students. “Our young people are seeking educational opportunities that will lead to productive careers,” said FSIN Chief Bobby Cameron. “These types of improved relationships will ensure our First Nation students get their educational needs met. Many of our First Nations students have graduated from the U of S and others are currently enrolled, therefore we advocate on their behalf to ensure their success in exercising the inherent and treaty right to education.” The Star Phoenix | NationTalk
