About People’s Free University

People’s Free University is an initiative of the Office of the Vice-Dean Indigenous, College of Arts and Science, and offers a series of presentations that link university learning with the broader community of Saskatoon and beyond. People’s Free University is designed to share knowledge with people who share curiosity and interest in innovation, but might not have the resources.

Speakers address what have been referred to as “wicked” challenges of the 21st century and are chosen for their critical and forward thinking and their ability to offer solutions to modern concerns. We encourage collaboration and discussions between Indigenous knowledge holders and western-trained knowledge holders, as well as the series participants. Our advisory committee is made up of community and university people who represent youth, women, artists and environmental issues. The committee helps identify topics and choose speakers. If you have some ideas you would like to explore/suggest, please contact us.
