Kenjgewin receives accreditation to grant postsecondary credentials

January 19, 2022
Kenjgewin Teg has become an accredited Indigenous Institute in Ontario by the Indigenous Education and Advanced Skills Council and will now be able to grant credentials such as diplomas, certificates, and degrees. Indigenous institutions historically have partnered with mainstream institutions to grant credentials, but this change will allow Kenjgewin to develop and offer Indigenous-based postsecondary education. “We wanted to be able to support our Indigenous students in really achieving a culturally relevant higher education,” said Kenjgewin President Stephanie Roy. “I think now what we’re really asserting is developing those credentials that will have that authentic world view of our people.” Kenjgewin Teg | CBC (ON)
