Meeting the Mayor, a Mi'kmaq gathering: highlights from the final week of the BNUZ Summmer Institute


A meeting with Mayor Mike Savage at City Hall and an introduction to the rich Mi'kmaqi culture with recent Honorary Doctorate recipient Bernie Francis rounded out the learning experiences for students visiting from BNUZ.

The students receive credit for completing the 3 week intensive program, designed to provide both academic and inter-cultural learning experiences. 

The program concluded with a farewell reception, hosted on August 3 by Dr. Robert Summerby-Murray, where students presented their final project: a short video presentations summing up their experiences.
