The Science and LFS Indigenous Student Initiative

Students » The Science and LFS Indigenous Student Initiative
The Indigenous Student Initiative is supported jointly by the faculties of Science and Land and Food Systems. Through the work of our Senior Advisor and Recruiter - Aboriginal Students, our faculties engage in outreach, recruitment, and student retention work with Indigenous students. In this work we aim to build long lasting relationships with Indigenous youth throughout their education into their careers.

UBC First Nations House of Learning

The First Nations House of Learning is a 'home away from home' for First Nations students studying at UBC.
