Yellowhead Tribal College and the University of Alberta have signed a memorandum of relational understanding focused on a new continuing education program. The two institutions will be co-delivering the Indigenous Community Industry Relations Certificate (ICIR) program, with Yellowhead taking responsibility for the courses that encompass ancestral knowledge of the land and UAlberta delivering courses that contribute to skills in business. “With this partnership, we make a historic move to have Indigenous students surrounded by their culture, Elders supports and Indigenous academics at YTC, while accessing programming from one of the finest universities in the world,” said Chief Tony Alexis of the Nakota Sioux Nation.
