Read SAIT's response to the continued discovery of unmarked graves at former residential schools in Canada and access support resources.

Read response

“In order to advance equity, diversity and inclusion at SAIT, I am focusing on breaking down the operational barriers that were created decades ago in the past. These no longer serve the values that our current SAIT community hold dear. Collaborative, open, authentic—these values are held by people I want to work between, with, and for.”

Reva Bond Ramsden
Dean, School of Construction
