People First: Designing an Indigenous mobility program

Currently in Canada, the participation rate for students in international mobility programs is less than 3%. This number is even lower for Indigenous students. In order to identify some of the barriers preventing Indigenous post-secondary students from accessing these programs and develop some fundamental principles that a successful outbound mobility program for Indigenous students should follow, the authors conducted interviews with 15 experts. Synthesizing the results of these interviews with findings from a literature review of sources on Indigenous education in Canada and abroad the authors provide six experience principles to help guide future program development.
