Continuing education certificate program gives students knowledge, skills and attitudes to foster better relationships among government, industry and Indigenous communities.
A new partnership is being celebrated by the University of Alberta and Yellowhead Tribal College to jointly deliver a continuing education program important to building relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada, and a deeper understanding of worldviews of the Indigenous peoples of these shared lands.
“This collaborative agreement brings together the knowledge systems of both institutions, their expertise and wisdom in their respective teaching areas, and their desire to work together for the provision of continuing education,” said Florence Glanfield, vice-provost of Indigenous programming and research for the U of A.
The two post-secondary institutions are celebrating a memorandum of relational understanding to co-deliver the Indigenous Community Industry Relations Certificate (ICIR) program.
