GDI, URegina partner to provide new Indigenous Education Doctorate program

The Gabriel Dumont Institute of Native Studies and Applied Research is partnering with the University of Regina to offer an Indigenous Education Doctorate program, which will welcome its first cohort this July. The three-year, community-based program is a complete URegina doctoral degree that focuses on Métis local knowledge, history, spirituality, and culture within national and international contexts. It is designed for residents of Northern Saskatchewan and will be delivered in Prince Albert. “We are confident this program will establish an important pathway for advanced Métis capacity and perspectives within the Saskatchewan education system,” said GDI Acting Executive Director Brett Vandale.
