Prepared in accordance with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code (SHRC), this report details the status of educational equity as of 1994-95 at the four institutes of the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST). Following an executive summary, part 2 outlines the organization of SIAST's Educational Equity Program (EEP), while part 3 lists the student groups designated as underrepresented in the SIAST student body: students of Aboriginal descent, disabled, visible minorities, and women. Part 4 provides data on the participation of these groups at the four SIAST campuses with respect to applications received, enrollment, graduation, withdrawal, and employment after graduation. Part 5 lists the percentages of these groups in the province as a whole, part 6 describes SIAST's long-term goals with respect to their participation, and part 7 describes trends in the groups' enrollment over the past 5 years. Part 8 describes SIAST's equity policy, detailing the roles and responsibilities of staff, while part 9 lists the EEP's broad goals and objectives for 1994-95. Part 10 summarizes the activities of SIAST's Education Equity Committee to achieve these goals and objectives, while parts 11 and 12 describe partnerships between SIAST and the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies and Dumont Technical Institute. Finally, part 13 describes the purpose of the Education Equity Special Fund and resulting projects at SIAST's four campuses, while section 14 summarizes activities undertaken in 1994-95 to meet SHRC conditions. Appendixes provide a glossary, tables on student group participation by campus, and detailed information on SIAST equity policies and goals. (HAA)
