Simon Fraser University and Langara College have signed a new agreement to allow Indigenous students to easily transfer from Langara to SFU to complete degree programs. The SFU-Langara Indigenous Transfer Pathway agreement details various commitments specified by institution to support Indigenous learners. For example, Langara has committed to objectives like providing Indigenous students with information on entrance awards and facilitating SFU recruitment at the college, while SFU will provide up to five Aboriginal Student Entrance Awards to eligible SFU transfer students. “This partnership will create better opportunities for Indigenous students and allow our institutions to work in partnership with the Indigenous community to meet their educational goals,” said Langara Provost and Vice-President, Academic and Students Ben Cecil.  SFU  | NationTalk  (BC)
