KPU to establish Faculty of Graduate Studies

Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Board of Governors recently voted to establish a Faculty of Graduate Studies. This vote lays the groundwork for KPU to offer master’s degree programs in the future, including a graduate program in operations, supply chain, and logistics management, which is under development. KPU stated that its approach to the new faculty integrates reconciliation from the start. “Weaving Indigenous ways of knowing, doing, being and becoming in education will be a central goal of the Faculty of Graduate Studies,” said KPU AVP, Academic Dr David Burns. “The new faculty will foreground Indigenous teachings and practices to guide and inform teaching and learning of master’s students, especially in areas like graduate student guidance.”
