Salary:             $20.00 per hour


There are two Co-Coordinators for SAGE.  The Co-Coordinators are responsible for managing the activities of the SAGE initiative, which supports Indigenous/Aboriginal graduate students in Master, Doctoral and Professional degrees across the University of Toronto campuses (including UTM and UTSC). Such support includes connecting with students via regular SAGE ‘nest’ meetings, organizing/planning relevant workshops, events and an annual research conference. Activities are planned with an effort to coordinate amongst other student groups and services, faculty and instructors at the University of Toronto, as well as Aboriginal communities where appropriate.


SAGE is a student driven initiative that focuses on enhancing the academic experiences of Indigenous/Aboriginal graduate students at the University of Toronto. Ultimately, SAGE works to support the successful attraction, retention and completion of Indigenous/Aboriginal scholars. SAGE nests exist across Canada at several universities, including the University of British Columbia. SAGE was developed from the Maori and Indigenous Programme (MAI) in New Zealand, which has been successful in increasing the number of Indigenous graduates.
