Building Indigenous Community Relationships to Further Education Abroad – Students Connecting – Students within Indigeneous Communities

The Indigenous Study Abroad Collaborative Framework (ISACF) is a collaboration between Langara College located on the unceded and traditional territory of the Musqueam people, Douglas College located on the unceded and traditional territory of the QayQayt and Kwikwetlem First Nations, and the University of the Fraser Valley located on the unceded territory of the Stó:lō peoples. Phase one of this initiative provided an opportunity to gather voices of Elders, students, and educators to explore opportunities about what a decolonized study abroad program would encompass with the intention of launching the first Indigenous study abroad collaborative project in summer 2022.
