The Supporting Aboriginal Graduate Enhancement (SAGE) program is excited to announce the dates for the 20th Annual Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium (IGSS)! 

This year’s symposium will take on March 17-18, 2023 in-person at The University of British Columbia’s Vancouver campus with virtual participation & accessibility.

The IGSS is a long-standing annual student-led event that provides a culturally relevant and supportive community for Indigenous graduate students to present on their research and contributions spanning any discipline. It fosters community-building and networking among peers and participating emerging and established scholars. It is an important platform for Indigenous students to connect and learn from one another, and grow professionally and academically. The IGSS is organized by the SAGE program and co-hosted by The University of British Columbia and Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies at Simon Fraser University.
