Canada-US, international science cooperation in the Arctic leads to new, entrepreneurship course

Several members of the Inclusion in Northern Research project have signed up for their very first university courses this January.

The new pilot course, Creativity for Entrepreneurship is being offered by the University of Minnesota Duluth was covered in an article in Nunavut’s Kivalliq News and Nunavut News North newspapers. Its design is also based on research conducted by the UMD professors Dr. Aparna Katre, PhD and Dr. Olaf Kuhlke, PhD in Alaska and Nunavut these past two years.

Students, their parents and even some grandparents have registered for the five-week course. This first pilot has 30 students. This month’s class includes ten Indigenous learners from Manitoba and Nunavut, ten from Minnesota and ten from India.

Our thanks to Kivalliq News for covering this inspiring project and good luck to all the learners in this exciting new course! Congratulations to everyone involved!
