At Saskatchewan Polytechnic, helping students achieve their educational and career goals is our top priority. No matter where they come from or who they are, we work hard to ensure students have an equal opportunity to succeed.
Indigenous Student Success Strategy was developed to provide Indigenous students with a variety of services that enhance the student experience and remove barriers to success. Enrolment for Indigenous students has increased 30 per cent since 2011-12. Sask Polytech has 3,700 Indigenous students; these students make up more than 18 per cent of the student population. Indigenous students are an important part of our campus community.
Guided by the principles of reconciliation and a goal to create long-term positive change, Sask Polytech's indigenization efforts holistically integrate Indigenous ways of knowing, teaching and learning into our practices, procedures and services. Continuing to put students' needs first, the Indigenous Student Success Strategy created an Indigenization declaration that guides efforts to ensure students can see themselves and their culture reflected throughout the institution.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic is committed to the Indigenization of our institution. Indigenization is our social and collective responsibility and it enriches and benefits all aspects of our institutional culture.
