Throughout the pandemic, the First Nations University of Canada has made the health and safety of our students, Elders, and staff the top priority while navigating through the best teaching methods to ensure our courses are delivered effectively. As more vaccinations across the province continue to increase and infection rates decrease, the University will transition towards a hybrid learning environment while maintaining flexibility should the COVID-19 situation change for the Fall 2021 term. Delivery of in-class courses, labs, and studios are dependent on various factors, and our plans will depict the process and procedures.
The First Nations University of Canada will work closely with the Ministry of Advanced Education and the Ministry of Health to ensure our campus locations in Regina, Saskatoon, and Prince Albert (Northern) comply with COVID-19 health and safety guidelines by the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA).
During the pandemic, the University has experienced growth with new improvements in our technology base and expanding our current course delivery, a benefit for the future. The perseverance, resiliency, and dedication our students and staff have demonstrated the past year are highly commendable. Our Elders have played an integral role in this journey by safely offering traditional support for our campus community.
To keep our campus communities safe and protected, and help bring back the welcoming, teaching and learning environment our University is known for, we encourage all students, faculty, and staff to get the COVID-19 vaccination when they are eligible. Working towards the Fall will see a new cycle, a new form of interconnecting. We will continue to work together to ensure the health and safety of all remain top priority by following all mandatory public health orders.
