Enrolment for Indigenous students has increased 31 per cent since 2011-12. Sask Polytech has 3,700 Indigenous students; these students make up more than 18 per cent of the student population. In 2014-15 the employment rate for Sask Polytech’s Indigenous graduates was 84%. Indigenous students are an important part of our campus community.

Indigenous students find success with ASAP; 98 per cent of students share they are satisfied or very satisfied with ASAP services. Also 92 per cent of indigenous students would recommend their academic program at Sask Polytech to others.
Indigenization with ASAP
Guided by the principles of reconciliation and a goal to create long-term positive change, Sask Polytech’s indigenization efforts holistically integrate Indigenous ways of knowing, teaching and learning into our practices, procedures and services. Continuing to put students’ needs first, ASAP created an Indigenization declaration that guides efforts to ensure students can see themselves and their culture reflected throughout the institution.
