New uSask President commits to indigenization

July 15, 2015

Peter Stoicheff, the incoming President of the University of Saskatchewan, has announced that he will make indigenization his top priority for the institution. “We cannot do our role in fostering a civil society with success unless we become demonstratively … the best place we can possibly be for the Aboriginal people of this province and of this country,” the new President said. “None of the rest of it matters at this point in our nation’s history if we do not achieve this.” The university must be a leader in closing the gaps between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people, he continued, calling this a “moral imperative.” StarPhoenix | CBC | Globe and Mail
