June 23, 2022
First Nations University of Canada, the University of Saskatchewan, and the University of Regina have announced the launch of a nation-building program for Indigenous leaders. The Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Nation-Building will be offered to leaders from across Canada. It will include online classes and an in-person residency component, and will cover topics such as the impact of colonialism and the role of Indigenous self-governance in transforming economic, social, health, and environmental outcomes. FNU is also formally celebrating the opening of its Indigenous Continuing Education Centre (ICEC) today. The centre, first announced in January, uses a hybrid learning model to provide distinct, Indigenous-focused short course programming. USask | FNU (ICEC) (SK)
