TITLE: Lessons From the Land: Applying Knowledge from Fall Harvesting to Working with Students
With the loss of my grandmother ten years ago I asked my family to help reconnect to them and their lifestyle. I hold multiple graduate degrees, first in the family to go to graduate university, and was a senior administrator, I am humbled every time I go out with them. Join Mark Solomon for some funny stories about life lessons that happened with his family that he uses virtually everyday.
“I enjoyed University so much I got a job at one.”
Mark Solomon is a proud member of Henvy Inlet First Nation located one hour south of Sudbury, he was born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie and claims to be an economic refugee from Northern Ontario living in Toronto. Mark has two undergraduate degrees from Laurentian University in Music and Native Studies, a MA from Brock University in Social Justice and a MEd from York University. He has held a number of roles at Seneca College and currently is the Senior Advisor to the President on Reconciliation and Inclusion. Mark has served as the President, of his professional association the Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS), he is the first Indigenous person to hold that role.
However all of this pales to the role he is the most proud of, a father to a 15 year old.
