Conversations with Indigenous Students

June 30, 2023

In celebration of National Indigenous History MonthSFU Publishing has taken the opportunity to connect with Indigenous students participating in our publishing minor courses.

We are also delighted to acknowledge the involvement of students from SFU’s Indigenous University Preparation Pathway (IUPP), which serves as a bridge program to support Indigenous students' journey into SFU. Notably, Spring 2023 marked the inclusion of a Publishing course in the IUPP curriculum, signifying a crucial step forward in promoting Indigenous representation in the publishing field. 

Moreover, we spoke to Indigenous students in our Master of Publishing (MPub) program, a 16-month graduate course in SFU's Faculty of Communication, Art, and Technology. This distinctive program is known for its innovative approach and dedication to encouraging future leaders in the publishing industry.
