Keyano to launch new Indigenous Advisory Circle, Elder or Auntie-in-Residence program


Keyano College has announced that it will implement an Indigenous Advisory Circle and an Elder or Auntie-in-Residence Program. These initiatives are part of a broader effort to foster the academic success and cultural integration of Keyano’s Indigenous students and community members, promote Indigenous-led solutions, and encourage equity and reconciliation. “For transformation to happen, we must implement curricular and non-curricular programming that is mindful of Indigenous history and ensure that our campus policies and support services align with Indigenous traditions,” said Keyano President Jay Notay. These initiatives are supported by a nearly $700K donation from the Suncor Energy Foundation.
