The First Nations University of Canada’s Saskatoon Campus is on the move, to be relocated to on-reserve space at English River First Nation facilities by July 2014. Also located in the same area are the University of Saskatchewan’s Office of First Nation and Métis Engagement and the Saskatchewan Indian Cultural Centre.

“We are committed to having operations in Saskatoon and we recognize the historic and contemporary importance of the Saskatoon Campus to FNUniv’s faculty, staff, students and community stakeholders,” stated FNUniv Board Chair David Sharpe. “Our highest priority is the continued success of the students currently enrolled at the Saskatoon Campus as well as meeting the needs of future students. We will be undertaking a strategic repositioning of program offerings in Saskatoon. Our offerings will respond to local student demand in ways that will maximize FNUniv’s competitive advantage.”

The Saskatoon Campus has been in existence since 1976, and has educated large numbers of students in Indigenous Social Work (ISW) and other programs. Students currently enrolled in ISW will have the opportunity to complete their program in Saskatoon. With the growing demand for ISW at FNUniv’s Regina and Prince Albert Campuses, more courses will soon be offered at those campuses as well.

FNUniv is a unique Canadian institution that specializes in Indigenous knowledge, providing post-secondary education for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students alike within a culturally support environment. The University provides a unique opportunity to study in an environment that supports First Nations cultures, languages, and values. FNUniv has campuses in Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert and offers community-based and online programs.

There is a lot of "unfinished business" in Indian Country. Garbage that we as a people have never really dealt with. Chief among them is the whole issue of those infamous residential schools and their impact on people. Read more...
