Kwantlen Polytechnic University has a new partnership with the Native Education College.

Students studying Indigenous land stewardship at the NEC can transfer their certificate into Kwantlen’s Horticulture Urban Ecosystems bachelor’s degree program.

“Students from the Indigenous land stewardship program will benefit greatly from the facilities and resources of KPU’s Department of Horticulture,” says Dr. Kathy Dunster, an instructor in the Horticulture Urban Ecosystems program.

“From greenhouses to a rooftop research garden and the Logan Creek floodplain forest and salmon stream post-colonial ecosystem repair project, we have many opportunities on our Langley campus for hands-on experiential education,” she says. 

Dunster adds that the partnership with NEC strengthens KPU’s commitment to Indigenous people and their rights to social and environmental justice, including scientific and Indigenous knowledge to achieve food sovereignty as well as land and water protection.
