Qualico Bridge to Success Program

The Indigenous Student Centre (ISC) is offering a new program called the Qualico Bridge to Success Program. The goal of this program is to facilitate the transition of new Indigenous (First Nation, Inuit, Métis) students into post-secondary education at the U of M by offering a learning cohort, academic learning opportunities, advising support, peer-mentoring and social events that will enhance their first-year experience. This program is available to new Indigenous students, and participation is voluntary.

The Qualico Bridge to Success Program is designed to develop the spiritual, physical, mental and emotional aspects of Indigenous students so they can be as successful as possible in their first year of study.

Highlights of the program include one-day summer camps prior to the start of the fall term, the Neechiwaken Indigenous Peer Mentor Program and student advising on a regular basis. Students will be invited to join the program once they are accepted to the University of Manitoba and will be able to apply to the program online through the Indigenous Student Centre’s website. There is no cost for this program!
