Indigenous Student Affairs

Dedicated to promoting full access, participation and success for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students.

Students are at the heart of our work here at the Indigenous Sharing and Learning Centre!

“Being a student at Laurentian has been amazing! I could not have been successful without the support from everyone at the Indigenous Student Affairs office. They helped me learn what it means to be a strong Anishinaabe-kwe in my community and in academia.”

- Stepfanie Johnston
Indigenous Studies specialization with minor in Indigenous Healing and Wellness
