211 Aboriginal Students Featured at 2018 UBC Spring Graduation

On May 26, 2018, Indigenous graduates from Faculties and Departments across UBC gathered in Sty-Wet-Tan Hall at the First Nations Longhouse, along with their families and members of the UBC community, for the annual Spring graduation ceremony hosted by the First Nations House of Learning (FNHL). The ceremony was an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding achievements of the 211 Aboriginal graduates of 2018, 58 of whom were in attendance.

The Office of Indigenous Education would like to offer our congratulations to all graduates on their tremendous accomplishments and continued successes moving forward.

We would also like to make a special acknowledgment of NITEP Assistant Director and Manager of Indigenous Education, Jessica La Rochelle, who graduated with her Master of Education in Educational Administration and Leadership with a focus on Leadership in Indigenous Education and was the student speaker at the FNHL graduation ceremony. Congratulations, Jessica!
