Fellowship

Pijunnanivunnut: Fulfilling our potential

In December of 2011, Joseph Flowers became the first Inuk from Nunavik to graduate from law school. He has also completed several post-secondary programs including a social sciences program at the college level, a professional cooking program, a Bachelor of Arts degree, and a Bachelor of Law degree. He attributes his educational acheivements in part to the help he received from the Kativik School Board (KSB), an Inuit-run school board which supports and guides students through post-secondary studies. For his Fellowship paper Joseph conducted a qualitative research project to understand which aspects of the KSB program are working particularly well, and which aspects could be improved.
