Supporting Aboriginal Graduate Enhancement

SAGE is a peer-mentoring, inter-institutional initiative provided to graduate students across British Columbia. SAGE is hosted at the University of British Columbia in collaboration with Simon Fraser University and has “pods” at the University of Victoria, UBC Okanagan, University of Northern British Columbia, and University of Toronto.

The goals of SAGE are to increase the number of PhD/EdD Indigenous and Aboriginal students/graduates, support the students throughout their program through culturally supportive events, and develop support systems through peer-and faculty-mentorships.
