YorkU launches virtual Indigenous Student Exchange Program

January 19, 2021
York University has launched a virtual pilot of their Indigenous Student Exchange Program. Through the program, ten students will participate in online workshops, which include topics such as food sovereignty, global Indigeneity, and knowledge keeping and sharing. Each student will be paired with another student from one of YorkU’s partner universities to complete a creative project. “In an unprecedented way at York, this program will create a knowledge exchange platform that allows each student to share their unique knowledge based on the Indigenous nation which they come from, while also drawing attention to the fact that there exists a multiplicity of Indigenous perspectives and experiences,” said Indigenous recruitment officer Breanna Barry.
