We are thrilled to introduce the members of the Indigenous Alumni Network (YUIAN)! The network provides diverse engagement opportunities for Indigenous alumni to be alumni ambassadors and to support fellow alumni and new and returning students across York's Indigenous community.
Please join us in welcoming the network's members: Krystal Abotossaway (BHRM '13), Sadie Hamilton (BA ’19), Lawrence Ignace (BA '17), Megis Oskalns (BSC '15, BSC '20), and Frank Stones (BA ’08).
Thank you to two of the network's original co-chairs, Janine Manning (BA '15), and Dave Smith (BSW '16, MSW '17), for their leadership, alongside Krystal Abotossaway who remains with the group.
