The First Nations University of Canada Focuses on Students’ Success Through Fiscally Sound Practices
The minutes are ticking away until the Saskatchewan Government’s 2014-2015 budget announcement and preparations are well underway for the First Nations University of Canada’s (FNUniv) Saskatoon Campus move to English River First Nation’s Grasswood facilities.
FNUniv has three campuses, one located in leased space in Prince Albert, another currently in leased space in downtown Saskatoon and the third being the iconic Regina Campus. Both the Regina and Prince Albert Campuses have seen growth in student enrolment and tuition revenue. In Prince Albert, tuition growth came despite the wrap-up of the Nursing Education Program of Saskatchewan and related Access program. Unfortunately, this has not been the case in Saskatoon. Saskatoon has continually been in a deficit position since 2006.
