Colleges Serving Aboriginal Learners and Communities: 2010 Environmental Scan. Trends, Programs, Services, Partnerships, Challenges and Lessons Learned
Association of Canadian Community Colleges
In 2005, the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) released the first report on college Aboriginal programs and services entitled Canadian Colleges and Institutes--Meeting the Needs of Aboriginal Learners. The 2005 report provided an overview of the programs and services offered and described how colleges work with Aboriginal communities to deliver a diverse range of programs and support services with a view to better serving the needs of Aboriginal learners. Five years later, ACCC conducted an environmental scan of Aboriginal engagement at colleges which included consultations with the ACCC National Aboriginal Programs and Services Committee, a review and analysis of statistics and research on Aboriginal participation in post-secondary education, in particular from Statistics Canada sources, an on-line survey with member colleges to garner policy perspectives on Aboriginal program and service delivery, and a search of college websites to build inventories of Aboriginal education programs and support services. The 56 member institutions that responded to the 2010 Aboriginal programs and services survey are listed in Appendix 1. This report provides an updated view of how colleges are serving Aboriginal learners and communities. Three accompanying documents are provided: Inventory of College Aboriginal Education Programs, Inventory of College Aboriginal Student Services, and Programs Offered by Aboriginal Institutes in Collaboration with Mainstream Institutions. 2010 Survey of Aboriginal Programs and Services is appended. (Contains 12 figures, 11 tables, and 14 footnotes.)
