Indigenous Student Mentors

Starting a new semester or attending a new school can be a bit overwhelming at first. It can take some time for new and returning students to adjust to university life.

The Indigenous Student Mentor Program aims to connect new First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students with senior Indigenous students at Augustana. Our fabulous Peer Mentors help incoming students connect with the community, become acquainted with the university, and provide guidance and encouragement to students as they transition to university life in Camrose.

2018-2019 Indigenous Student Representative - Abigail Lee

ALeeAbigail Lee is the Indigenous Students’ Representative for the 2018/2019 school year. She is a second year Chemistry major and a Biology minor and aspiring to become a General Practitioner. Growing up in Coaldale, Alberta, she wanted to expand her knowledge of her Métis heritage and culture. Since attending university she found that the Aboriginal Students' Office was a great resource to connect and learn about the culture and meet new people on campus. The many workshops and opportunities offered helped her in her first year to gain knowledge and a want to be in this position. She enjoys having tea and napping when she is not being involved around campus. She has a passion for making change, through direct impact on the issues she believes in. As the Indigenous Students’ Representative, she wants to create connections through the diversity on campus. She will do this by creating events with Indigenous ties that everyone on campus can enjoy. The hope is that people will be able to increase their knowledge about Indigenous culture and be more aware of the different cultures present on campus. Feel free to contact her at ahl1@ualberta.ca.

Office hours: Thursdays 1:00 - 2:00 PM
