The College of Arts and Science Indigenous Student Scholars’ Experience (ISSE) invites Indigenous undergraduate students to participate in workshops, guest speaker events and facilitated discussion circles in support of your learning goals.
Three ISSE sessions are offered in the Winter 2021 term.
Indigenizing Your Academic Experience; Digital Indigenous Identities with Skawennati
Date: Thursday, March 25
Time: 1–2:30 pm
This event is for Indigenous undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Science
About this workshop
Following a keynote address by Indigenous digital artist and historian Skawennati, a panel of Indigenous graduate students will host a circle discussion focused on their talk, as well as on personal experiences of self-location within academia as an Indigenous student scholar; and in the online world, where the Indigenous digital footprint is big and growing bigger!
This event is offered in collaboration with the University of Saskatchewan Art Galleries and Collection.
Build your network, connect with Indigenous role models, alumni and fellow students to co-imagine your shared future! ISSE gatherings are coordinated through the Office of the Vice Dean Indigenous, College of Arts and Science; in collaboration with Student Learning Services; Indigenous Student Achievement Pathways; and Departmental Partners.
Is the ISSE for me?
ISSE is for any Indigenous undergraduate student seeking to expand their academic, professional, and intercultural skillset. ISSE gatherings will focus on a theme, and each session will be facilitated by an Indigenous graduate student with expertise and earned experience to share.
How do I sign up?
Each ISSE gathering will have a separate registration. Students who participate in three ISSE sessions within a calendar year (e.g. Jan 2021-Dec 2021) will receive an entry acknowledging participation on their Co-Curricular Record (CCR); recordings will be available after each session for those who cannot attend live, with participation demonstrated by submission of a post-event reflection.
