On Thursday, September 13, Education graduate students attended a Welcome Back event, organized and hosted by the Office of Research and Graduate Programs in Education. Associate Dean, Dr. Twyla Salm and Program Advisor Linda Jiang greeted students, and several faculty members attended as well. Attendee names were entered and drawn for door prizes, which were given out throughout the evening. A lovely display of food and drinks were served.
Join Dr. Jerome Cranston, our new Dean, as he discusses literacy and skills development with Regina Public Library Director, Jeff Barber. Hosted by Edward Willett with a musical performance by Ava Wild. It’s free!
Thursday @ 7:00 p.m. Regina Public Library, Central Branch
The happy faces of some our graduates after years of hard work. Many of the graduates photographed already have teaching jobs! (Move your cursor over the photo below and click on the arrow to see the next photo.)
You will note that some of our students are holding two degrees! We offer select 5-year combined degrees programs in partnership with other Faculties (though it appears at least one of our students did this in 4 years–see tweets below).
We admit high school graduates to our undergraduate Education programs, and we offer After Degree (BEAD) programs for those who already have an accredited degree.
If you have credits from another accredited post-secondary degree program, we will see if they fit into your program as transfer credits.
If you have been internationally teacher educated, and need to become certified to teach in Canada, let us help you find your way back into the teaching profession.
You can now apply all year round, entering your Education program in all new terms.

Hot off the press, Dissident Knowledge in Higher Education, edited by Drs. Marc Spooner and James McNinch, pulls together the papers and discussions presented at the Public Engagement and the Politics of Evidence pre-symposium (2014-2015) and symposium (July, 2015) hosted by the University of Regina. Along with the preface and introduction by Marc Spooner and James McNinch, Dissident Knowledge includes a foreward by Leonardo Zeus, and chapters by Noam Chomsky, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Yvonna Lincoln, Norman Denzin, Michelle Fine, Budd Hall, Patti Lather, Marie Battiste, Eve Tuck, Sandy Grande, Rosalind Gill, Joel Westheimer, Christopher Meyers and Peter McLaren, which “delve into the effects of colonialism, neoliberalism, and audit culture on higher education” and offer “promising avenues of resistance” (University of Regina Press).
Dr. Marc Spooner and Dr. James McNinch will be hosting a book launch
Sunday, May 27th 3:00 – 4:30 pm
Place: Booth #22, Congress Book Expo, Centre for Kinesiology, University of Regina
All our welcome
“Fueling the current onslaught on higher education is the perfect storm of neoliberalism at its apex, totalitarianism on the rise, and enduring legacies of colonialism, white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, and imperialism. Education has never been guarded from such forces, but nor has it ever been free of contestation, and higher education in particular has long perpetuated injustice even as it seeded revolutions. Such is the searing analysis and nurturing of hope offered by an all-star collection of scholars.” – Kevin Kumashiro, author of Bad Teacher!: How Blaming Teachers Distorts the Bigger Picture
“[A] rich examination of the impact of corporatization of our universities, as well as how they can be reclaimed.” – James Turk, editor of Academic Freedom in Conflict
“This book maps the path toward a university based on ethics and justice rather than corporate needs. It reaches anyone who wants to understand the social, political, and economic trends that define our times.” – William Ayers, author of Teaching with Conscience in an Imperfect World
“The space for dissent and democratic debate is quickly shrinking both in public life and academic institutions. This volume helps readers ask critical and conscious questions about what it means to contend for truth.” – Gloria Ladson-Billings, author of The Dreamkeepers
