The Certificate in Aboriginal Governance and Partnership
124.1 The Certificate in Aboriginal Governance and Partnership
The Certificate in Aboriginal Governance and Partnership is administered by the Faculty of Native Studies and is available to students: (1) in undergraduate degree programs across the University, regardless of Faculty or program; or (2) as a University credit certificate only. (See §16.10.5).
This certificate will provide students with the necessary understanding and skills to effectively lead, work, or partner with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal businesses, communities, organizations, or governments. The program of study centers on developing knowledge while increasing analytical and applied skills suited to the unique governance issues and opportunities facing Aboriginal peoples and their non-Aboriginal partners today. The curriculum features theory and practice for negotiations and partnership between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal entities, including best practices for successful partnership, leadership, government, management, administration, and business growth for First Nations, Métis and Inuit organizations, and their non-Aboriginal counterparts.
Current students in a University of Alberta degree program wishing to pursue the Certificate in Aboriginal Governance and Partnership should contact the Academic Advisor in the Faculty of Native Studies at firstname.lastname@example.org.
