Recruitment

Goal: By 2019-20, Indigenous students will make up six per cent of the student population. Going into The Coyote Project: Indigenous enrolment fluctuated around four to five per cent between 2012 and 2016.


The Faculty of Law has had a 100 per cent completion rate since it opened in 2011. Its goal is to attract more Indigenous students. The faculty takes first-year students to a day at the Tk’emlups te Secwépemc First Nation to tour the former residential school and hear from survivors. Second-year students have gone to Pipsell Lake and heard from Secwépemc teachers about land issues and the proposed mine that would have affected the lake. A similar experience for third-year students is next.
