Ukrainian Studies Roundtable

On the evening of Wednesday, February 26th, the University of Saskatchewan Ukrainian Students Association (USUSA) hosted a roundtable discussion about the current and future state of Ukrainian studies on the U of S campus.

At this event, USUSA executive members, past and current USask students, and community leaders spoke about their experiences within the Ukrainian Minor program and within the city of Saskatoon’s wider Ukrainian-Canadian community.

Those who shared their thoughts included:

Connor Moen — a former student of the Spring Session in Ukraine (SSU) program and former USUSA president — who now works on Parliament Hill and joined via Skype; Nykola Dovgyy, the current USUSA president; Tiana Kirstein, VP Internal for USUSA and a former student of the Spring Session in Ukraine program; Oliver Childs, a former student of the Spring Session in Ukraine program and a former USUSA member (representing students of non-Ukrainian heritage); and Nykole King, a former student of the Spring Session in Ukraine program and the current Editor-in-Chief of the Sheaf, the University of Saskatchewan’s student weekly.
