“Honour ceremonies give us the opportunity to celebrate the educational achievements of our Indigenous students,” says Jason Seright, director, Indigenous Strategy. “We’re proud of what they’ve accomplished and we want to show our support in a culturally appropriate way.”
Each ceremony welcomes students in their graduating year and their families and friends as well as Elders and other members from the student's home communities. Those attending will have dinner as well as an opportunity to hear success stories from current students and a performance of an honour song.
More than 19 per cent of the student population identifies as Indigenous. The Indigenous Student Success Strategy helps remove barriers to success for Indigenous students and enhance their experience by incorporating Indigenous ways of thinking and learning into the everyday culture of Sask Polytech.
