Indigenous Sharing and Learning Centre
The Indigenous Sharing and Learning Centre (ISLC), led by Director Shelly Moore-Frappier, houses Indigenous Student Affairs. The ISLC, which officially opened on June 21, 2017, enhances cultural, social and supports academics for Indigenous learners. The Centre serves as a resource for Indigenous student success by achieving objectives set out in Laurentian’s Strategic Plan. It also provides students with informal study and learning spaces, and creates work and teaching spaces for program staff and Elders. Additionally, the primary space for teaching, social and cultural events within the new ISLC will be the central gathering space. This room accommodates large groups in a number of different configurations, allowing for teaching, meeting, lectures and special celebrations. The room has views and access to the surrounding landscaped area, which is developed with outdoor teaching spaces as a direct extension of the educational and cultural programs that take place within the ISLC.
The distinct architectural character of the ISLC will provide a visible presence for the University’s Indigenous community within the University Commons. The Centre held it's official Grand Opening on June 21st, 2017 (click here to read more).
