At Selkirk College, we are grateful to the Sinixt, Sylix, Ktunaxa, and Secwépmec peoples on whose traditional territories our campuses and learning centres operate. We are grateful to work with an engaged and proud Métis community who make the West Kootenay and Boundary regions their home. And we honour and celebrate the values, cultures, and ways-of-knowing that all Indigenous learners bring to Selkirk College.
Selkirk College recognizes the importance of providing a welcoming, respectful, safe and supportive learning environment for all Indigenous learners and their families. Our work at Selkirk College focuses on providing you with an inspiring learning environment, supporting you to achieve your educational goals and helping you to build a remarkable future. Whether it is academic upgrading; a career in trades, technology, health or human services, or natural resources; or successful transfer to university degree studies, we have a range of options in our more than 60 programs of disciples, and over 90 credentials. We are proud of our accessible entrance requirements, affordable tuition, small class sizes, excellent teaching, and extensive financial aid opportunities.
We are strengthening partnerships with First Nation and Métis communities within and outside the region; and our recently launched Indigenization Plan continues to guide our efforts to decolonize and Indigenize programs, services, and operations. Our goal is to provide access and opportunity for learners to be successful in their post secondary education pursuits and develop their individual capacity. Selkirk College’s Indigenous Services team and their colleagues in Student Access and Support, and Financial Aid departments are ready to help you, as are all of us at Selkirk!
I look forward to seeing you at one of our campuses soon!
Selkirk College President
