Three SFU First Nations faculty and staff members are cited among the Education 100, a selection of UBC education graduates acknowledged for their dedication, impact and expertise as community leaders in their professional area:

  • Education professor Amy Parent (Nisg’a), whose research focuses on how Aboriginal youth experience the transition from high school to university.
  • William Lindsay (Stoney-Cree), director of the Office for Aboriginal Peoples, who has devoted much of his career to building bridges between the educational needs of First Nations peoples and the post-secondary institutions that serve them, for the benefit of both communities.
  • Ethel Gardner (Stó:lō), who has been a key contributor to Aboriginal language revitalization and Aboriginal education. An SFU PhD alumna, she is also noted among SFU’s 50 Inspiring Alumni. She is now a member of SFU’s Elders’ program.
