Officials at SIAST say the rate of Aboriginal grad employment at the institution is up eight percentage points to 90%.

The finding was released in the school’s annual graduate survey in which 15% of respondents self-identify as Aboriginal.

SIAST has the highest number of Aboriginal students among all Saskatchewan post-secondary institutions.

Overall, grad employment was up two points to 93%.

That compares favourably with youth employment rates both provincially and nationally.

It is also one of the highest graduate employment rates in the country.

The most recent survey results are for 2010-11 grads.
