Improving International Outbound Mobility Opportunities for Indigenous and Low-income Students

With post-secondary institutions utilizing global learning experiences to develop intercultural competence, it is imperative that all students have access to such programming. Indigenous students make up 19% and 38% of Sask Polytech’s and Parkland College’s student population respectively. However, their participation in international mobility programming does not positively correlate to their representation on campus. This is an equity issue, and if left unchecked, exacerbates the challenges that Indigenous students encounter in accessing the workforce. This project will increase international mobility opportunities for Indigenous and low-income students by improving financial supports, creating new opportunities for programs, and enhancing international mobility services.
