The Indigenous Student Initiative is supported jointly by the faculties of Science and Land and Food Systems. Through the work of our Senior Advisor - Indigenous 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.
