USask Indigenous students continue push for independent student union

October 4, 2018

The University of Saskatchewan's Indigenous Students’ Councils will hold discussions with its membership about earning recognition as a student union, reports CBC. Council President Regan Ratt-Misponas told CBC that student union status will create Indigenous students seats on USask’s Board of Governors, Senate, and other governing university bodies. Currently, the Council operates under the jurisdiction of USask’s student union. Ratt-Misponas added that Indigenous peoples deserve a seat at the table where policies and initiatives that will affect them are implemented. CBC
