Indigenous Perspectives Designation

The Indigenous Perspectives Designation (IPD) provides students who choose to access this learning option with a more in-depth knowledge of First Nation, Inuit and Métis peoples, their cultures, histories, traditions, and contributions to our shared society.

The programs that offer an IPD provide experiential learning Indigenous activities and discipline-specific Indigenous curriculum in each semester, beyond what is required in the two mandatory general education subjects: GNED49/INDG 49 Introduction to Indigenous Studies and GNED128/INDG 128 Introduction to Indigenous Knowledges. Upon graduation, students with an IPD will have a strong foundational basis in Indigenous studies, and a designation that will be in demand as they start their careers.

Community Engagement

An imperative piece of the Indigenous Perspectives Designation is community engagement, where students respectfully attend and participate in appropriate Indigenous events and initiatives. This gives students the opportunity to participate in activities that promote respectful relationships, applied learning and professional partnerships. Participation is acknowledged in each student’s Co-Curricular Record (CCR), a tool designed by the College for students to document their non-academic learning experiences and activities. This validated record will help to reflect positive co-curricular involvement and enhance students’ portfolios and resumes.
