Indigenous Graduate Education for the 21st Century
Many Universities have SAGE Programs or Liaison and Support Officers. Most of you do not know each other. CAGS would like to extend an invitation to those involved in supporting indigenous graduate students to a roundtable to share best practices and experiences across universities and regions and to network.
The Roundtable will run from 10am through 2pm Atlantic time on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, immediately in advance of the CAGS conference.
A virtual meeting option will be available for those unable to attend in person. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The overall aim of this panel is to share with conference attendees the ongoing work of our Task Force, and also to solicit comments, suggestions, and ideas for how we might continue to affect meaningful changes moving forward.
