Dear SAGE Community,

The Office of Indigenous Education is accepting applications for the SAGE Provincial Coordinator, Graduate Academic Assistant. Please email with any questions.

SAGE is such a wonderful community of scholars! I am truly grateful for the learning experiences, and opportunities to serve Indigenous grad students for the past two and a half years. As of September, I have become a part of the team at the First Nations House of Learning, as the Aboriginal Student and Community Development Officer. I hope to be a resource to Indigenous graduate students in this role, and to continue being an active member of SAGE while I finish my PhD. I invite all of you to drop by room 184 at the Longhouse to visit anytime – please come say hi!

Thanks and enjoy the SAGE Digest!
