FNUniv, Parkland College enter into agreement.

This fall, the First Nations University of Canada will launch a four-year Bachelor of Indigenous Education program at Fort Qu'Appelle in partnership with Parkland Regional College. "Community-based programming is central to the First Nations University of Canada's mission. Educating students in their communities leads to greater retention resulting in graduates staying in their communities upon completion. This partnership is another important step in extending the reach of our programs," said Dr. Lynn Wells, Vice President, Academic at FNUniv, in a news release. "This is a program which I am confident will yield many benefits for both the First Nations and non-First Nations communities in our area," said Gwen Machnee, University Program Coordinator at Parkland College.
