The Indigenous Student Centre (ISC) strives to be a home away from home for First Nations, Inuit and Métis students. You can talk with the Indigenous Student Advisor, meet other students and join in activities and cultural events. The following are just some of the services you will find at the ISC:
- Learning supports include financial support for tutoring, study space and graduate student support designed to help you achieve academic success.
- Financial supports help you to plan your financial strategy for university and apply for scholarships and bursaries.
- Advising supports includes the Indigenous Student Advisor, visits with Elders and Knowledge Holders and referrals to mainstream counselling and accessibility supports. You can ask questions, talk things through, seek advice or simply share with someone who will respect your experiences.
The ISC also hosts a range of activities and events in the fall and winter to help you stay connected with the community, including Soup and Bannock Wednesdays and Learning Circles. In October of each year, Indigenous Recognition Week acknowledges and celebrates First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples’ presence and partnerships on campus, and creates opportunities for education and discussion.
