The college is committed to incorporating Indigenous perspectives and knowledge in capacity building, community service and teaching,” said Great Plains College vice president academic, Brian Gobbett.

“We are happy to have an ongoing relationship with the Office of the Treaty Commissioner and pleased to formalize it through the signing of this strategic alliance.”
