ULethbridge president calls for more Indigenous support, study abroad, skills development

October 29, 2018

The Lethbridge Herald reports that during an address to the Universities Canada Network, University of Lethbridge President Mike Mahon asserted that Canadian universities must do more to support Indigenous students and encourage undergraduates to study overseas. “Just under 11 per cent of Indigenous people in Canada have university degrees,” compared to 25% of the non-Indigenous population, Mahon added, "so we’re actively working to advance reconciliation through education.” Mahon further noted that many Canadian workers need opportunities to “refresh and evolve” their skills.
