Aboriginal Student Office

Aboriginal Engagement Committee

Since January of 2013, the Aboriginal Engagement Committee has been meeting to champion, promote, and support initiatives aimed at fostering greater Aboriginal student participation and engagement on campus. It also aims to help develop strong campus-community relationships with various members of Canada’s First Nations, Inuit, and Métis populations.

The Committee is meant to advise the Dean as well as all members of the campus in their decisions when they affect Aboriginal students and communities. It also hopes to serve as a bridge between the campus community and neighbouring First Nations and Métis communities.
