MRU, Łútsël K’é sign five-year practicum agreement


Mount Royal University and the Łútsël K’é Dene First Nation have signed a five-year practicum agreement. Students in MRU’s Faculty of Health, Community and Education will be able to travel to the Łútsël K’é community in the Northwest Territories for practicum placements, where they will create, design, and implement recreation programs. Further work under the agreement will be conducted to determine if similar opportunities can be organized for MRU students from other programs. “This partnership that we are creating is for the greater community and I think we are going to see a great benefit for our youth,” said Łútsël K’é Dene First Nation Chief James Marlowe. “Practicum students who choose to come here will benefit too as they experience our culture and our way of living.”
