The Indigenous Educational Pathways project was developed in partnership with UBC’s Okanagan Planning and Institutional Research (OPAIR) and the British Columbia Council for Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT). Our research team is interviewing academic experts and conducting focus groups with Indigenous students on the topics of access, mobility, and persistence in BC’s post-secondary transfer system. The objective of this research is to identify the unique barriers and opportunities presented to Indigenous students as they navigate their PSE journey within the BC Transfer System. The results of the study will inform future practices, programs, and policies affecting Indigenous students in PSE.
