SLC renews commitment to Indigenous students and partners

2017-10-05

Today, St. Lawrence College renewed its commitment to Indigenous students and partners by announcing a set of actions in response to Truth and Reconciliation and the CiCan Indigenous Education Protocol.

The protocol, signed by colleges and universities across the country, recognizes and confirms SLC’s accepted responsibility and commitment to Indigenous education.
“This will respect and support the learning needs of our students while committing St. Lawrence College to do our part in supporting the self-determination and socio-economic development of Indigenous communities,” said Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO.

“We have deep respect for, and a commitment to, our Indigenous students and partners but the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission has shown us that there is a lot more we can do – and will do - to honour the cultures and worldviews of Indigenous people, and to properly acknowledge the history of the relationships between education systems and Indigenous people.”
