Hands Back, Hands Forward – Making a Difference in Indigenous Teacher Education
2016 marks the 42nd Anniversary of NITEP, UBC’s Indigenous Teacher Education Program. Over the past four decades, over 37O students have graduated and gone on to work in all areas of education from classroom teachers in public, private and band schools, to elementary and high school administrators, as well as holding positions with the provincial government and numerous First Nations educational organizations.
NITEP graduates are truly making a difference in the lives of Indigenous children and youth throughout BC. Help to honour this amazing legacy by contributing to the UBC Alumni NITEP scholarship that has been endowed by the UBC Alumni Association to assist NITEP students and ensure their success for many decades to come.
