The Indigenous Adult and Higher Learning Association (IAHLA) Data Collection Project is designed to develop a better understanding of what is happening in First Nations adult and post-secondary institutes and to report on the scope of programs and services being offered to support learners.
The project is led by First Nations adult and post-secondary institutes and reports data that reflects First Nations values. The six areas that the project looks at are:
- personal development
- leadership development
- cultural development
- wisdom development
- student satisfaction
IAHLA greatly appreciates Aboriginal institutes’ participation in its annual data collection project. The aggregate information has been useful when working with other education stakeholders to highlight the important role of IAHLA institutes in the post-secondary education system in BC.
