Post-Secondary Subcommittee

FNESC has an active Post-Secondary Subcommittee that works to advance issues related to First Nations post-secondary education and to develop united responses to provincial and federal PSE policies and programs.  The overall goal of the work done to date has been to ensure that all BC First Nations students have access to high quality post-secondary opportunities.

The Subcommittee is comprised of FNESC Board members who are selected based upon their experience and knowledge of First Nations PSE.  The subcommittee meets regularly to discuss relevant issues and reports to the FNESC Board regularly regarding PSE matters.
