SIAST Education Equity Program Annual Monitoring Report Summary, 1999-2000.
Saskatchewan Inst. of Applied Science and Technology, Saskatoon.
This annual report for 1999-2000 monitors the Education Equity Program for the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST). The program assures potential students access to adult and postsecondary educational opportunities such that the proportions of targeted equity groups to the total student body are the same as in the working age population of Saskatchewan. SIAST offers the program to students in all areas: certificate and diploma, basic education, extension, and apprenticeship programs. The program's long-term goal is to achieve a representative student body. In order to achieve this goal, a percentage of seats are allocated for some underrepresented student groups. The participation goals are based on the Saskatchewan work force, while the long-term goals are based on the percentage of designated group persons in the working age population as of June, 1996. The percentages are as follows: (1) persons of Aboriginal ancestry, 12%; (2) persons with disabilities, 10%; (3) persons of visible minority, Regina--5%, Saskatoon--5%, Moose Jaw and Prince Albert--3%; and (4) women in the workforce, 45%. The report details the program's policy and guidelines, participation statistics, and special fund projects and activities. Includes a history of the program, and a summary of the year's events and accomplishments. (NB)
