Indigenous Student Services
You will find our Indigenous Student Services at both the Waterloo and Brantford campuses. These centres serve not only as places where Indigenous students can connect with their heritage, but also as places of education for the broader Laurier community. All are welcome to our community medicinal and vegetable gardens, soup and frybread lunches, Indigenous Education Week and other cultural programming hosted throughout the year.
The Indigenous Student Centres offer supportive, holistic, cultural and academic programming for all Indigenous students – First Nations (status and non-status), Inuit and Métis at both the Waterloo and Brantford campuses.
