University of Saskatchewan
Date posted: 2013-12-06
Our new leader will find their success in the success of our students.
The University of Saskatchewan is looking for a team leader of First Nations, Métis and Inuit student success who is passionate about supporting students so they're at their very best. We have a growing Aboriginal student population and we are committed to their academic and personal accomplishments.
This new senior leader will use their knowledge of Aboriginal culture and issues to fill a key role as we work to fulfill the commitment we made in Promise and Potential, our most recent integrated plan. One of the plan's four areas of focus is Aboriginal engagement, and we have plans to increase both our Aboriginal student enrolment and our Aboriginal student graduation rates.
The team leader of First Nations, Métis and Inuit student success will work with many other partners across and off campus to remove barriers for Aboriginal students, to strengthen connections between groups and to more effectively deliver services to our students, giving them every opportunity we can to be successful.
We have a growing number of Aboriginal students and a wide array of services and supports available to them. Working with the many people who currently administer these services and managing the staff in our Aboriginal Students' Centre, our team leader will find creative and meaningful ways to better address the unique challenges Aboriginal students face.
We want a dynamic leader who will motivate the people around them. We want someone with proven skills to develop and implement plans that will make a tangible difference every day for U of S students. We want someone to join our team and find their happiness in inspiring others to succeed.
