Royal Roads University has launched a new online Certificate in Indigenous Environmental Leadership Pathways program that will give Indigenous students the opportunity to launch careers in environmental leadership without having to leave their communities. Indigenous knowledge, values, and worldviews are embedded in the program to teach students to consider more effective responses to environmental issues. The program includes three asynchronous courses and culminates in a final practicum which gives students the opportunity to work directly with an organization addressing environmental issues in their nation or community. Students will receive the support of a supervisor, an academic advisor, grants, and credit transfer options for pursuing further postsecondary education. “It’s really designed to serve Indigenous communities in a way that post-secondary education hasn’t done before,” said Royal Roads professor Leslie King.
