Yukon University is a flexible, post-secondary institution grounded in research and education relevant to the North.
We prioritize the uniqueness of the North as a driving factor in all that we do to preserve, thrive and grow the Yukon, together. With tailored learning opportunities and programs, our thirteen campuses play a critical role in delivering education throughout the Yukon. We invite students from across Canada and the world to come study with us and learn more about Canada’s north.
Launched in March 2019, the eleven episodes of season one feature stories about Indigenizing curriculum, Elders on campus, land-based learning, and the legacies of residential school in Yukon.
The podcast also covers our early days as a vocational school, the naming of the Whitehorse campus “Ayamdigut” (I-am-dey-goot), the 2008 Sunrise Report and its significant impact on the institution's relationship with First Nations in Yukon, as well as aspirations for the role Yukon University will play in Northern post-secondary education.
The project is part of our response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action.
