Indigenous Achievement Week (IAW) is an annual University of Saskatchewan event that celebrates Métis, First Nations and Inuit students, staff, faculty and alumni’s successes and contributions. This year’s IAW will be hosted remotely and is scheduled for March 7 to 11, 2022.

Throughout the week there will be various events hosted by USask units and colleges. Including:

  • A pipe ceremony to start the week off in a good way. Due to COVID we will host a private smaller ceremony.
  •  The Indigenous Student Achievement Awards Ceremony. They take place online Thursday, March 10. The awards celebrate Indigenous student success. Students will be honoured for their academic achievement, community engagement, leadership, research and resiliency.

Everyone is welcome. A full list of events be available soon.
