SIAST Education Equity Program: Annual Monitoring Report. July 1, 2000-June 30, 2001.
Saskatchewan Inst. of Applied Science and Technology, Saskatoon.
This Annual Monitoring Report presents the history, policy, and structure of the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST) Education Equity Program. This report includes the 2000-2001 long-range goals for participation in the SIAST programs. Since self-identification is voluntary, statistics are assumed to be incomplete. The long-term goal of the program is to achieve a representative student body. In order to achieve this goal, a percentage of seats are allocated for some designated student groups. SIAST offers the program to students in all program areas: Certificate and Diploma, Basic Education, Extension, and Apprenticeship programs. The program includes the following population groups: (1) students of Aboriginal ancestry; (2) students with disabilities; (3) students of visible minorities; and (4) female students in predominantly male programs. The participation goals are based on the Saskatchewan workforce, 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 policy and its guidelines, participation statistics, and special fund projects and activities. (NB)
