Aboriginal Transitions: Undergraduate to Graduate - AT U2G

About ATU2G

Aboriginal Transitions: Undergraduate to Graduate Studies (AT: U2G) focused on the undergraduate-to-graduate transition theme by 1) conducting a rigorous examination of graduate program/mentoring models in BC, across Canada, and internationally, with particular attention to those that serve Aboriginal graduate students, 2) conducting a critical analysis of existing post-secondary student data and literature on the topic, and 3) conducting a comprehensive research project, which included individual interviews, focus groups, and surveys, the outcomes of which provided a new, evidence-based and provincially transportable model for U2G educational transition.

Key findings from the first phase (year 1, 2008-2009) of the study were used to develop three major transitional framework components: (1) research awareness/learning and faculty mentoring; (2) peer support through a SAGE-Undergraduate provincial network; and (3) digital technology and Web 2.0 approaches. Each component was piloted (year 2, 2009-2010) with participating post-secondary institutions across British Columbia.

Universities highlight credit programs for Aboriginal students

A new online resource for Aboriginal students, featuring a database of for-credit programs and support services offered by 77 member institutions, was launched Jan. 17 by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. The centralized database is meant to be a one-stop shop for Aboriginal students seeking information on postsecondary degree options. Click on link above for full story.
