Indigenous Leadership Program

The Indigenous Leadership Program (ILP) is a program for First Nations, M├ętis, and Inuit students that seeks to strengthen leadership processes in alignment with Indigenous world views. Through workshops, speaker events, exercises, and panels, the program is approached from an ethic of kinship to discuss topics of leadership, such as self-understanding, conflict management, and community empowerment. This program is available in Fall 2022.
