PRESS RELEASE

June 11, 2013

The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government (LMG) is proud to announce a groundbreaking collaboration between the Listuguj Mi’gmaq and Cape Breton University. Students will now have the option of attending University in Listuguj.

Cape Breton University’s 3 year Bachelor of Arts in Community Studies (BACS) degree program will be delivered in Listuguj through Unama’ki College of Cape Breton University.  The BACS program will welcome 25 students beginning in September, 2013.  A unique feature of the program is that several courses will be taught by local Mi’gmaq Instructors who possess a Masters or Ph.D. degree.  “Listuguj is a glowing example of a community that is taking a forward thinking approach and is committed to education” states Gail Metallic, Director of Education in Listuguj. Unama’ki College of Cape Breton University has built its relationship with the LMG on its history with Unama’ki Mi’gmaq and the notion that education has no borders.   It has reached out to the Mi’gmaq of Gespegawagi

Cape Breton University Staff and Professors will be in Listuguj on Wednesday, June 19 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm to meet with potential students and local Instructors. Media is invited to attend an official launch of the program with Cape Breton University and Listuguj Mi’gmaq officials on June 19, 2013 from 3:15 pm to 4:00 pm.
