April 24, 2012

Simon Fraser University's First Nations Studies program has been given department status and will be placed within the arts and social sciences faculty. "I am thrilled...it definitely shows the university's commitment to ongoing Aboriginal initiatives and will assist in making the new department the best of its kind in British Columbia," says the director of SFU’s Office for Aboriginal Peoples. "There is a tremendous focus on Aboriginal issues and initiatives at SFU as we speak. Having the above occur will only add to Simon Fraser's stature in this area." The department offers sequential, comprehensive courses rooted in traditional and contemporary Aboriginal logic, methodology, practice, and theory. SFU News Release
