Queen’s Supporting Aboriginal Graduate Enhancement (SAGE) 

Queen’s SAGE is an interdisciplinary and cross-institutional peer-mentoring program designed to support Indigenous graduate students with the successful transition into and completion of their graduate programs.

SAGE is also a student-driven mentor/support program, designed to increase Indigenous graduate students’ comfort level and relative ease within their programs, the university and the community as a whole. We will have quarterly meetings where students can socialize, share experiences as students and researchers, and support each other throughout the graduate experience.
